University of Winnipeg

Canada
Overview

Overview

Based in Winnipeg, Manitoba, ranked in the top three best large Canadian cities to live in according to MoneySense magazine, this 53-year-old chartered university is highly noted for its academic excellence, small class sizes, environmental commitment and campus diversity.

Students attending the university can benefit from a low student-faculty ratio and early, hands on work and research experience. The university is highly accessible, with its students benefiting from the third-lowest tuition rates across Canada.

With nearly 10,000 students, 12 percent of which are international students from over 75 countries, the university nurtures global citizens of the future. Located in a city where over 100 different languages are spoken, students attending UWinnipeg can benefit from the local job market.

Focusing on a student-first approach, the university offers more than 400 high-quality undergraduate courses across 50 fields of study, several of which that are unique in Western Canada. The university motto is Lux et Veritas Florent, which translates to ''Let Light and Truth Flourish.''

The campus is a mix of classic and modern, environmentally conscious facilities, and was one of the first Canadian universities to ban the sale of bottled water. The Richardson College for the Environment and Science Complex features more than 30 state-of-the-art teaching and research laboratories.

The campus's vibrant downtown location, with open green spaces and walkways, allows students to advance their level of education while benefiting from the wide range of shops, arts and culture just steps away from the campus. Many incredible job opportunities are available to graduates, with major industrial sectors in the city including financial services, aerospace, manufacturing, and biotechnology.

What's new

What's new

Over the last ten years, the university has invested more than CAD 217 million in the construction of new facilities and renovations of its existing structures, including CAD 66 million towards the Richardson College for the Environment and Science Complex, which attracts more than 2,000 people daily and features more than 30 state-of-the-art teaching and research laboratories.

UWinnipeg also invested in the student residence building and a day care centre. McFeetor's Hall is home to 177 students and offers single or double dorm options, a meal plan, onsite laundry, and 24-hour security. There are also options for students with families. The UWSA Day Care, run by the students' association, is one of the largest child care centres in the downtown area and has capacity for 96 pre-schoolers, toddlers, or infants from the UWinnipeg community and the surrounding neighborhoods.

The Buhler Centre, across the street from the main campus, is the home to the faculty of business and economics, as well as the classrooms for PACE (Professional, Applied and Continuing Education) programs, the Plug In Institute of Contemporary Art, and Stella's Cafe.

The Axworthy Health and RecPlex is a multi-purpose sports facility featuring a large, multi-use turf field that can be converted into three cross-court fields for soccer, football and other field sports. There is also a four-lane sprint track, a gym, a studio for fitness activities, and lounge spaces for students or visitors.

Teaching quality

UWinnipeg offers undergraduate students a large number of programs across four faculties. Arts is noted for psychology, human rights, criminal justice and theatre and film. Business and Economics offers a BBA with concentration areas such as accounting or marketing. Kinesiology offers a general stream or a science degree in athletic therapy. Science majors include biochemistry, physics, environmental science, and neuroscience, among others.

The university offers class sizes of between 30 and 60 students with an average 1st and 2nd year class having just 36 students. The estimated student-faculty ratio over a program of study is 25:1. UWinnipeg students have the chance to meet their professors and connect with other learners from the start.

These small class offerings enable more time for one-to-one support and the discovery of new people and cultures, whilst creating the perfect environment for learning. With 90 percent of graduates satisfied with the education they receive, the university's high-quality provision of education means that students have the best opportunities to learn and thrive.

With a graduate population rating the level of experience received at UWinnipeg in the top ten of all Canadian universities, student teaching quality is greatly enhanced by the state-of-the-art research and teaching facilities on offer.
