International Student Advising Services

Our International Student Advisors (ISAs) recognize the unique experience of international students. We are here to help you with your adjustment to life in Canada and throughout your time at the University of Manitoba.

The ISAs at the International Centre work with you at various points during your time at the U of M to plan ahead, or work through challenges, regarding personal matters, academics, university regulations and policies, and life in Winnipeg/life in a new culture. The ISAs can also provide guidance on immigration regulations as they relate to your studies in Canada such as study permit extensions and changes, Temporary Resident Visas, the Post-Graduation Work Permit Program and more. Our advisors can provide you with the information and referrals you need.

Students may book an appointment to meet with an advisor at a specific time or may come during drop-in times to see an advisor without making an appointment in advance. Please call the International Centre front desk at 204-474-8501 or visit us at 541 UMSU University Centre, and our receptionist will be happy to book an appointment for you or discuss drop-in availability.
