3 | New Student 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 courses, building a timetable, developing your academic skills, and understanding the university’s policies and regulations. 


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 at 204-474-9456 for more information or to register.

Arts 1110 - Introduction to University Summer Course
Students looking to get a head start on their university studies can take the popular course Arts 1110 - Introduction to University over the summer. Arts 1110 – Introduction to University is designed to prepare incoming students of all achievement levels to make the transition to a university learning environment. This course counts for 3 credit hours and meets the Written English (W) requirement for most degree programs. You will also be introduced to a university lecture setting and participate in smaller break-out sessions where you can focus on developing your writing skills.

Qualico Bridge to Success Program
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.
