The University of Manitoba is western Canada's first university. Founded more than 130 years ago, and located in the heart of the country, it is Manitoba's largest and only research-intensive university.
The University of Manitoba offers an excess of 90 degrees, diplomas, and certificates —more than 60 of which are at the undergraduate level, including professional disciplines such as medicine, law, and engineering.
Its energetic university community is comprised of over 26,000 students, 8,000 faculty and staff, and 180,000 alumni. Nearly 8% of its current students are international, too, representing close to 100 countries.
The university stimulates over $1.8 billion in economic activity in the province, and is considered a leader in Manitoba's knowledge economy with ground-breaking research in nanotechnology, functional foods and nutraceuticals, HIV/AIDS, and climate change.
With a strong legacy of excellence to guide it, the University of Manitoba and its dynamic community of researchers, students, teachers, and staff are addressing the challenges facing Canada and the world in the 21st century.
