The Collegiate Advantage

The University of Winnipeg Collegiate has established a tradition of academic excellence over the past 50 years, and is proud to offer high school programs that provide an ideal transition to post-secondary education.


Seamless Admission to UWinnipeg

Graduating Collegiate students who meet entrance requirements to UWinnipeg automatically receive seamless admission into undergraduate studies. They will receive an offer of acceptance in January before being offered formal admission in April, when final Grade 12 marks are available.


Dual-Credit Courses

Qualified students can accelerate their learning at UWC by taking dual-credit courses in their Grade 12 year. Dual-credit courses are introductory first-year university courses that students can use for credit toward both their high school diploma and an eligible university degree.

We also offer university credit courses that help students transition to university studies including Intro to University and Academic Writing.


EAL-Credit Courses

Our unique high school program provides international students with English language and social studies instruction at the ‘E’ (EAL) designated level, as well as integrated academic instruction at the ‘S’ (Specialized) designated level.


Scholarship Consideration for Canadian Universities

International students graduating with a Manitoba High School Diploma and applying to a Canadian university may qualify for undergraduate entrance scholarships. A dedicated Scholarship Office assists students with their application for scholarships and awards for their post-secondary studies.


Customized Academic and Student Support

UWC’s full-time International Student Advisor assists students with academic planning and ongoing academic and student support services throughout their high school program. International Collegiate students receive assistance and guidance in completing applications for university/college programs.
