UWinnipeg Students in Thailand


The Administration of the Faculty of Education at The University of Winnipeg has been in contact (both via phone and email) with our faculty member in Bangkok, professor Lenna Glade, and would like to provide the following information regarding our program in Thailand.

Professor Glade has advised the students to have sufficient water, packaged food that does not require refrigeration, and candles or flashlight. She has also sent a “to-do” list and emergency contact information, along with website links to crucial information.

There will be no academic penalties for the disruption caused by the current flooding in Thailand. Students can either choose to remain in Bangkok and finish up their program or return to Canada and complete the requirements in Winnipeg. For general inquiries at UWinnipeg please call Joanne Cheung at 204. 786-9491
or you can email her jo.cheung@uwinnipeg.ca

Students have been advised to register with the Canadian Embassy in Thailand, and work closely with personnel there. We will be informing the Embassy that the University of Winnipeg is supportive should students decide to return to Canada.

This information is based on current conditions in Bangkok, and is subject to change should a more formal Advisory be issued by Foreign Affairs and International Trade Canada (Government of Canada).
