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.
