The cost of your university education will depend on many factors such as:

Your Residency: Canadian and International residents
Students who are not Canadian citizens, permanent residents or landed immigrants of Canada will be assessed a differential tuition fee (*exemption for Minnesota residents). Other costs will include supplementary health and dental insurance and student visa application. For more information on attending the University of Manitoba as an international student, please visit our international student section of the website.

Your Program & Courses
The number of years required for study, textbook requirements, tuition fees and faculty fees will all vary by program. Your yearly tuition costs will be determined by the types of courses you take and your number of registered credit hours. For more information on buying textbooks, please visit our University of Manitoba Bookstore or Archives Used Bookstore. For more information on a specific program, please see our program list.

Your Living Accommodations & Lifestyle
