At the University of Manitoba, we do research that changes the way the world thinks.


The University of Manitoba, western Canada’s first university, is located in the heart of Canada – Winnipeg, Manitoba – and is ranked one of the top 50 research-intensive universities in Canada. We offer more than 100 academic programs, with 47 doctoral, 90 master’s and one diploma program.

At the University of Manitoba, you’ll find 44 Canada Research Chairs – the country’s top experts in their fields – and the only Canada Excellence Research Chair in Arctic Geomicrobiology and Climate Change. We have developed or partnered with 53 research centres and institutes that believe in collaborative research and scholarship.

More than 1600 faculty contribute to the graduate enterprise, offering an exceptional education that includes mentoring, training, and professional skills development, ensuring our graduates find fulfilling careers.

The University of Manitoba offers a rich and comprehensive selection of master’s and doctoral options. In addition, students can transcend traditional disciplinary boundaries and assemble their own Individual Interdisciplinary Studies program.

We offer an enriched student experience, from new technologies and ways to learn in and outside of the classroom, to a balanced approach to life that promotes physical activity and well-being. Our Fort Garry campus is alive day and night as thousands of football fans and concert-goers fill the world-class Investors Group Field.

Our energetic university community is comprised of more than 29,000 students and 13 per cent of our students are international, representing 104 countries. In fact, the mid-sized city of Winnipeg (population: 780,000) is known for its diversity, along with its vibrant arts and culture scene and friendly people.

Graduate students at the University of Manitoba play an integral role in the research that will define our future and we are committed to providing financial support to attract leaders.
