Evening of Excellence - Tuesday, October 27, 2015

High achieving Grade 11 and Grade 12 students who excel in the classroom, as leaders in their community, or as athletes on the field are encouraged to attend this evening open-house.  Talk one on one with faculty and staff from your program of interest and learn more about applying to university, scholarships and awards, and everything the U of M has to offer. Parents are also welcome!

Info Days - Wednesday, February 17 & Thursday, February 18, 2016

The U of M's two-day, annual open house is for high school students in Grade 10 and up who are interested in learning more about the University of Manitoba. Students typically attend Info Days as a class or in groups; counsellors are encouraged to register students from their school to attend on one of the two event days. Students at Info Days can attend sample university lectures or program information sessions, tour different buildings and faculties, and meet with current staff and students. Students choose what they want to attend from a schedule of presentations, tours, and other fun activities that are offered throughout the day. We also offer a Counsellor's Lounge for counsellors to relax, check their email, and get the latest information about the U of M.
