Orientation & Welcome Programs

Orientation & International Student Welcome Sessions

Studying in a new country can be both exciting and overwhelming. While you are adjusting to a new academic environment and new academic policies, you will also have to adjust to a new culture, new customs, new foods, a different climate, and to being away from your family and friends.

Attending one of our International Centre’s Welcome Sessions will help you get your term off to a great start! The sessions has been designed specifically for international students and will help to ensure you have a successful transition to life in Winnipeg and to your studies at the U of M. All new international undergraduate students are strongly encouraged to attend one of these events.

At the International Student Welcome Session you can expect to:

  • Meet other students from Canada and around the world
  • Get information to help you get settled in Winnipeg
  • Learn about cultural differences in educational settings
  • Get to know your academic rights and responsibilities
  • Learn about the services available to you on campus

There are two sessions that will cover the same content. You only need to attend ONE of these sessions:
