Expanded Admission

The University of Winnipeg affirms the values of equal opportunity, equity, and social justice. In keeping with these values, the Faculty of Education has established a policy of expanded admission to help us recruit a group of education students who generally reflect the diversity of the population of Manitoba. Students who wish to be considered for Expanded Admission include an Expanded Admission Student Application Form with their application, and provide supporting documentation.
