All Workshops are Free.

For more information or to register for a specific workshop, click on the Register ▶ link.

If you are unable to attend a workshop, contact us or cancel your registration online.

Please note that the same workshop offered at Bannatyne campus may be shorter than that offered at Fort Garry, due to schedule restrictions.


All of our workshop presenters are volunteering their time to the GradSteps program. Their presentation, number of handouts, and continued involvement in the program are all based on the number of registered students.

As such, we ask that students make every effort to attend those workshops for which they are registered. If unable to attend, please cancel your attendance prior to workshop start by either logging in to the system and declining, or by emailing graduate.studies@umanitoba.ca.
