Welcome to University 1 – one of your options for direct-entry admission at the University of Manitoba.
Choose University 1 if:
- You are interested in a program that requires one or more year(s) of prior university study
- You are undecided about which program you want to study
- You do not meet the admission requirements for another program with a direct-entry option
- You would like guidance from academic advisors who specialize in the transition from high school to university
University 1: What you should know
- In University 1, you can design a schedule that meets the admission or first- year requirements for one or more target degree programs. You can study multiple subject areas, or focus on a specific path.
- If you are not yet sure which path is right for you, University 1 lets you explore a variety of subject areas. All of the courses you take in U1 can become part of your degree program.
- After you finish University 1 (by completing 24 – 30 credit hours) you can apply or transit to another undergraduate faculty at the University of Manitoba. This is considered advanced entry to a faculty or program.
- University 1 students have access to the First Year Centre – our UM resource centre dedicated entirely to helping you, the first year student.
