As a school counsellor, teacher, or educator, you play a vital role in preparing high school students for their future. The University of Manitoba is dedicated to providing you with the information you need to help your students transition from high school to university.
School counsellors, educators and career professionals are invited to join us in September and April for annual professional development webinars focused on UM programs, services and important updates. Supplementary videos and recordings are also available to watch on-demand.
Thanks to all counsellors who were able to join us for our fall counsellor events. Recordings of our Sept. 2023 events can be found below. We look forward to seeing you at our New Counsellor Orientation and Fall Counsellors' Seminar in September 2024.
Save the date for our spring webinar focused on everything counsellors need to know when working with students who have applied for fall admission. This session is best-suited for Manitoba high school counsellors and educators. Registration will open in March 2024.

2023-2024 Program Information
Help your students to discover all that the University of Manitoba has to offer. Encourage your students to attend in-person and online campus tours and events throughout the year.
We offer a number of helpful tools and resources to ensure students are well-prepared to enter the university and succeed in our community.
The Indigenous Student Recruitment + Community Relations team is available to advise prospective Indigenous students whether they are applying directly from high school, coming from an adult learning centre or mature learners. Contact us at email@example.com for more information or to arrange a presentation or campus visit.
International students finishing their high school education in Canada may be required to demonstrate English language proficiency depending on their home country and the amount of time they have been studying in Canada.
Students and counsellors can use our career planning resources to explore occupations, interests and the different job outcomes and professional opportunities available to students in our programs.
Students with accessibility needs are encouraged to connect with Student Accessibility Services (SAS) to arrange a consultation. SAS can provide assistance for students with a wide range of accessibility needs, from note taking services to interpreters and counselling. Students are encouraged to contact SAS to discuss their accessibility needs well before the start of classes (at least one month prior is strongly recommended).
Applications for fall admission are available every year in October. Students will complete their application for admission online and should review the admission requirements and high school pre-requisites for their intended program prior to starting an application.
High school students may apply via the direct entry route into a faculty/college or program. This means beginning their studies in University 1 (U1) or a program that offers a direct entry option. Encourage your students to review the Direct Entry admission requirements for their intended program prior to beginning their application to determine what high school courses are necessary for admission.
Counsellors and students can use the First Year Planning Guide to identify required first year university courses for any UM degree program – select the program name from the guide index and you will be taken to a page that lists course and elective requirements as well as information about high school course pre-requisites and minimum grades.
*While students are encouraged to apply for admission to University 1 by March 1, the final application deadline for University 1 is May 1 for international students and August 1 for Canadian Citizens and Permanent Residents.
Students who apply prior to March 1 may receive a conditional offer of admission based on their self-reported grades. Conditional offers are provided for select programs between December and March depending on the date of application and are not to be confused with official admission offers, which are provided after first semester final and second semester interim grades have been assessed.
The University of Manitoba provides more than $35 million in scholarship and bursary support to students. High school students may be eligible for some awards automatically while others require specific applications. Encourage your students to familiarize themselves with our scholarship opportunities and prepare by taking the appropriate high school courses.
General entrance scholarships
General entrance scholarships ranging from $1,000 - $3,000 may be awarded to eligible students who meet the entrance scholarship requirements and apply for Direct Entry admission prior to March 1. Counsellors and educators are encouraged to use the Academic 40S course guide (PDF) to determine which senior level courses may be considered for general entrance scholarships.
Other entrance awards, such as BMO Leader of Tomorrow and Indigenous Leader of Tomorrow entrance scholarships, may require separate applications and have award-specific requirements and deadlines. Encourage your students to familiarize themselves with the many scholarship and award opportunities listed below.
Counsellors and students can explore scholarship and award opportunities using our searchable Awards Database. Search by program, year of study, student type and more!
