The University of Manitoba has student exchange agreements with two international dental hygiene Programs: Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, Sweden, and Turku Polytechnic in Turku, Finland. The School of Dental Hygiene also has a partnership agreement with the University of Missouri-Kansas City in Kansas City, Missouri.
Two students in their second year of dental hygiene are offered this opportunity at each place at one time. The students go for a two-week excursion and they may use this opportunity toward one of their dental hygiene project in second year. Eligibility is based on both academic standing and personal interest and students must apply to the School of Dental Hygiene Director. The school, due to lack of funding, unfortunately cannot cover any of the costs so the students must pay for their own expenses.
