University of manitoba postgraduate admissions

Each year the University of Manitoba welcomes graduate students from around the world to live and learn in Winnipeg, Canada. We invite you to join us.

General admission requirements

To study as a graduate student at the University of Manitoba:

  1. You must demonstrate English language proficiency
    AND
  2. You must have, as a minimum, an Honours (four-year bachelor’s) degree or equivalent from a recognized college or university.

Some of our departments may have higher standards and additional criteria. These may include admissions tests such as the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) or the Graduate Management Aptitude Test (GMAT), a statement of research interests or experience in the field. 

Please visit the program page for your department for more details on application requirements and the academic achievement equivalent for your country.

English language proficiency requirements

English is the language of instruction and communication at the University of Manitoba. Where an English language test score is required as a basis for admission, documented proof of English language proficiency must be submitted with your application for admission.

International degree equivalencies

The Faculty of Graduate Studies sets an academic achievement equivalent for universities and colleges both inside and outside of Canada.

  • Find international degree equivalencies by country of study

International GPA calculations

All applicants require a minimum GPA of 3.0 (B) or equivalent in their last 60 credit hours of study. Because credit systems vary, credits are counted only for Canadian and U.S. admissions, all other GPAs will be calculated based on the  most recent two years of full time study.

If a transcript does not indicate semesters or years, the whole degree program will be used in the calculation. Note that the last two years of study may be split between degrees or institutions (e.g., one year of master’s work plus the last year of bachelor’s work).

To calculate the GPA, convert each grade to the equivalent University of Manitoba grade and then calculate as you would a UM GPA. This method is used in order to create a more equal opportunity of admission for applicants.

If the applicant completed four courses in China with final scores of 96 per cent, 83 per cent, 72 per cent and 71 per cent, they would have the equivalent University of Manitoba grades of one A+, one B and two Cs. The GPA would then be calculated as if calculating a University of Manitoba application.

Calculating a weighted GPA

Since credit hours systems differ across the world, the two years of full-time study are based on semesters, they are not determined by credit hours for international applicants.

A weighted GPA can be calculated for international applicants based on the last two years of full-time study, as long as the transcripts includes credit hours for each course.

If transcripts do not indicate credit hours for all courses, the GPA would be calculated with each course valued at one credit hour. 
 

Grade scales

If a transcript includes the institution’s grade scale, this scale must be used in the GPA calculation. If this information is not on the transcript and cannot be found on the institution’s website, equivalency tables can be found under the International Equivalency Criteria page.

If an international transcript provides letter grades for a student (e.g., A, B, C, etc.,) these grades are considered equivalent to the same University of Manitoba grade. For example, an A would be equal to an A, a B to a B, and so on.

The University of Manitoba does not award “minus” grades. When a grade scale includes an “A” and “A-“, but no “A+” on the scale, the “A” can be treated as equivalent to “A+” on the UM scale, and the “A-” is equivalent to an “A.”  
 

Calculating GPAs for entrance scholarships

To be considered for the International Graduate Student Entrance Scholarship, students will need to achieve a minimum GPA of 3.5 on a 4.5 scale in their last two full years of study. Entrance GPAs are calculated based on the transcripts received at time of admission.

When an admission GPA cannot be calculated on a 4.5 scale (e.g., if there are no “plus” or “minus” grades on the original scale), convert the final GPA out of 4.0 to the equivalent out of 4.5.; i.e., x/4.0 = y/4.5. This calculation will only be used to determine eligibility for the International Graduate Student Entrance Scholarship. This conversion is not used to determine admissibility of an applicant. 

Please note, not all grade scales can be converted to 4.5; for example, grade scales that include an A as the highest grade with B+ as the second highest grade possible (no A- in the scale).

For further examples of GPA calculations, please refer to the sample transcripts found under the Examples of Calculating International GPAs.

If a country is not listed under University of Manitoba International Equivalency Criteria, please contact [email protected] for assistance.

  3. If there are credits or units (do not use hours) available, determine how many credits and units were received for each grade. This step should only be used if all the courses in the last two full years of study have credits. If they do not, weight each course equally and determine the number of courses that were assigned each grade.
  4. Multiply the total credit for each grade (or the total number of courses for each grade) by the grade point to arrive at the weighted grade point.
  5. Add the weighted grade points and divide by the total number of credits or courses. This will be the student’s GPA for their last two years of study.

university of manitoba graduate programs fees

Your total tuition and fees for each term are determined by many factors, including the program you are in, the courses you are taking and your status as a domestic or international student.

This page was last updated on August 05, 2021.

Each term, an official summary of your tuition and fees will be posted in your Aurora student account. To check your current balance, log in to Aurora and select “Enrolment & Academic Records,” “Student Records,” and “View Account Summary by Term.”

If your student account hasn’t been updated yet, or if you haven’t registered for classes, you may want to know roughly how much your expenses will be. Follow these steps to determine which fees apply to you and calculate your total amount owing for each term:

Step 1: Calculate your base tuition

Most graduate programs at the University of Manitoba have a flat tuition rate for each term, though for some programs, tuition is assessed on a per-credit-hour basis. Begin by identifying the base tuition for your program and term of study. 

Step 2: Add fees based on your program of study

In addition to tuition, most students at UM pay some fees that are specific to their program of study. After you have determined your base tuition, identify which program-specific fees apply to you. Then, add these fees to the base tuition amount that you calculated in Step 1.

Step 3: Add general graduate studies fees

Some fees apply to all graduate students, regardless of the program of study. Add the applicable graduate studies fees to your base tuition identified in Steps 1 and 2.

Step 4: Add applicable general fees

Fees for several services, courses and memberships throughout the university may also be applied to your student account. Add the general fees that apply to you to the tuition and graduate fees identified in Steps 1 to 3.

Once you have considered which fees in each category apply to you, add them up to calculate an estimated amount owing for each term. Remember that not all university costs are recorded on this page. Expenses like housing, parking, meals and books should be taken into account when creating a budget. 

Continuing fee

Graduate students are required to pay continuing fees in each academic term for which they are not paying program fees. This includes students whose program of study extends beyond the typical program length, and where program fees are paid in Fall and Winter terms, the continuing fee will be assessed in Summer Term.

* Starting Summer 2021, students admitted to Graduate Studies will be assessed program fees in their first two terms of study, followed by the continuing fee in the third term. Therefore, students who are admitted to their program in Summer 2021 will be assessed program fees in Summer 2021 and Fall 2021, and will be assessed the continuing fee in Winter 2022.

2021- 2022 Continuing fee: $518.75 per term.

STEP 1: CALCULATE YOUR BASE TUITIONPre-masters, occasional studies and diploma program tuition rates

Pre-master’s

Pre-Master’s students enrolling in courses are assessed the per credit hour course rate of the teaching unit for all courses taken.

Occasional studies

Graduate students in the Occasional Studies program and graduate students enrolling in courses that are not part of their degree program are assessed the per credit hour course rate of the teaching unit for those courses take as occasional.

Auditing courses

Graduate students enrolled to audit courses are assessed 50 per cent of the per credit hour course rate of the teaching unit for those courses.

PhD program tuition rates

Graduate students are required to pay continuing fees in each academic term for which they are not paying program fees. This includes students whose program of study extends beyond the typical program length, and where program fees are paid in Fall and Winter terms, the continuing fee will be assessed in Summer Term.
    
* Starting Summer 2021, students admitted to Graduate Studies will be assessed program fees in their first two terms of study, followed by the continuing fee in the third term. Therefore, students who are admitted to their program in Summer 2021 will be assessed program fees in Summer 2021 and Fall 2021, and will be assessed the continuing fee in Winter 2022.

Commencing Fall 2020, international students in PhD programs will no longer be assessed international differential fees. All PhD students will be assessed the same program fees, both domestic and international.

Fees for those transferring from the master’s to the PhD program

Field work fees

Field Work Fees cover expenses for student activity that takes place outside university facilities that are paid by the teaching department on behalf of students. Field work fees may cover accommodations, transportation, meals and/or group admissions.

These fees are compulsory for all students enrolled in the courses to which they are applied and are normally non-refundable after registration. As the university teaching department may have paid out expenses on behalf of registered students, once you register for a class with a field work fee you are normally responsible for the fee even if you drop the class before it begins.

Students intending to drop a course with a field work fee prior to the start of a class must consult the teaching department to determine if they may be eligible for a refund of field work fees. 

Courses with field work fees are noted in class schedule comments. To determine the amount of fees associated with a course, first view the course in the class schedule. If a comment indicates a field work fee will be assessed, click on the course number and title to view class details. Field work fees will be classified as base fees. Field work fees are assessed in addition to course tuition fees.

  • Averages greater than or equal to 95% –  $3,000
  • Averages greater than or equal to 90% –  $2,000
