Welcome International Students

September 7, 2019 1 By Stanley Isaacs


Like you I’m also an international student at the U of M. I’m sure you’re excited to be coming to Canada to study. Welcome to the University of Manitoba. My name is Salima Sudi And I’m a third year student in the Department of Political Studies. The university is here to support you during your studies through the services and programs of the International Centre. You will have received an email from the International Centre welcoming you and encouraging you to register for the International Centre’s. Welcome and orientation program. This program takes place the week before the university’s larger new Student Orientation. It is a very important component of your success of the university. Attending the International Centre’s welcome and orientation program will give you a chance to meet other international students from around the world who are also embarking on their studies at the U of M. You will learn about cultural differences in educational settings, receive tips to help you get settled in Winnipeg, get to know some of your academic rights and responsibilities, learn about the services available to you on campus, and learn about and take part in other activities and programs hosted by International Centre both on and off campus. Watch for Connect for Success programs that take place throughout the year. Designed to meet your need as an international student after attending the International Centre welcome and orientation program, don’t forget to also attend new student orientation for all new U of M students.
