Why UWinnipeg?

Adult Learner Services


Conveniently located in the heart of the city, The University of Winnipeg is a comfortable mid-size university with students of all ages and backgrounds. We’re a diverse community of learners.

We believe in access, making it possible for someone who has accomplished many skills and knowledge over the years but for various reasons did not complete high school, the option to apply for admission under Mature Access

We offer a wide range of high quality programs which open doors to new careers, promotions, self-discovery and personal satisfaction. Explore what we have to offer through our Program Fact Sheets.  

UWinnipeg offers flexibility.  You can choose to go to school full-time or part-time. You can select evening classes and online or video on demand (VOD) courses. You may want to explore Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition to see if you are eligible to receive some University credits for your learning experience. As well, if you’re a veteran, current, or retired member of the Canadian Forces, go to Military Training and Service to see if you are eligible for University credits for your military courses and rank.

Beyond the classroom, the University offers many supports that make returning to school easier, especially for the adult leaner:

  • academic advising for adult learners
