Graduate Student Orientation

All new graduate and professional school students are invited to attend the Graduate Student Orientation at the Fort Garry Campus on August 30, 2019.

This comprehensive orientation includes a welcome session, lunch, and workshops that provide information to:

  • ease your transition into graduate school
  • introduce you to campus services and other opportunities and
  • show you just how much the University of Manitoba has to offer.

The Graduate Student Orientation is not intended to take the place of your departmental orientation. If your school or department has planned concurrent orientation activities, you should attend those events.

The 2019 Graduate Student Orientation is proudly hosted by the University of Manitoba Graduate Students' Association (UMGSA), the Faculty of Graduate Studies and Student Life.
