International Graduate Students

Application Requirements

All graduate programs require at 3.0 incoming GPA, and some require higher. Please check with the individual programs.
Calculating an equivalent incoming GPA for the University of Manitoba can be difficult. Calculations are taken from the last two years of academic work, and some general instructions can be found below.

In addition, international applicants may be required to submit an English Language Proficiency test score. Please see below for acceptable tests and exemptions.  


The Faculty of Graduate Studies lists scholarships and fellowships available for international students.
