Upcoming Events
A number of events are held in advance of the start of classes to help you prepare for university. Many of these events are held in the summer months and focus on choosing university classes, building a timetable, developing your academic skills, and understanding the university’s policies and regulations.

Head Start
Held annually on the first weekend of June, Head Start is one-day event for you and your family to visit campus and learn more about what to expect in the months between high school and the start of university.

Get Ready to Register Sessions
Attend an information session hosted by First Year Centre advisors to learn more about preparing for registration and scheduling your classes. Sessions are offered in early July, ahead of the registration period.

Career Choices: Figuring Out Your Future
How do you move forward in your degree and your courses if you don’t have a career direction? Many students come to university without a final job or occupation in mind, or change their minds along the way – and that’s okay! Attend this session to learn about the career resources that will help you explore who you are, your interests, and how this relates to planning for university. Sessions are for admitted students only and are available throughout July. Contact Career Services for more information or to register.

Reading to Write Program
This free online academic writing program is designed for new students and allows participants to work with a writing tutor to improve their speed and comfort with common, basic academic writing and reading tasks. Tutors provide relevant feedback on students’ writing, reading and language skills. Contact the Academic Learning Centre for more information or to register.

Summer University Advantage
Summer University Advantage offers students the opportunity to begin their studies in the summer. Earn 3 credit hours towards your degree by taking the popular course Arts 1110 - Introduction to University and participate in a range of activities to help make a successful transition to the U of M.

Qualico Bridge to Success
Indigenous (First Nations, Inuit, Metis) students are invited to join the Qualico Bridge to Success (QBTS) program. The goal of QBTS is to facilitate the transition of new Indigenous students to the University of Manitoba by offering pre-orientation programming, academic learning support, advising and special events.

Held just prior to the start of classes, Orientation provides an introduction to life at university. Whether you are starting classes in the fall or winter, you should attend Orientation to learn the basics about your new community.
