Message from the President and Vice-Chancellor of the University of Manitoba

Dr Emo˝ke J.E. Szathmáry President and Vice-Chancellor University of Manitoba

I would like to welcome International College of Manitoba (ICM) students to Western Canada’s oldest university, which celebrated its 130th anniversary in 2007. Since 1877 the University of Manitoba has been at the centre of post-secondary education in our province, and has adhered to its core philosophy that access to the best education must be available to all who have the ability to benefit by it, regardless of sex, race, creed, language or nationality.

Supporting you while you study Study and learning support At ICM, we understand that the transition to university level study can be difficult for some students. To assist you in developing the study skills necessary to successfully complete your program of study, ICM offers you a variety of different study and learning support services. Our Academic Advisor, in conjunction with various teaching staff, runs a number of information sessions and workshops throughout the semester for students who want to develop their study skills in areas such as time management and examination techniques. The Academic Advisor and other teaching staff are also available for individual or group appointments throughout the semester if you need assistance with assignment drafting, researching, structuring, writing and referencing. International students who need extra help with their spoken and written English skills will also find the free English and study skills programs offered each semester very helpful. We encourage you to participate in these programs and to contact the friendly staff at ICM for advice and assistance as soon as you are finding things a little difficult.

Student support A free and confidential advising service is available to all ICM students. Things often do not go the way we had planned or sometimes problems of a personal nature

18

arise. An Advisor is available to meet with you to discuss a range of problems or concerns that you may have while you are at ICM. If anything is preventing you from enjoying your academic, social or personal life, then seeing the ICM Advisor is often a very good start in resolving these issues. ICM students also have access to the excellent health and counselling services of the University of Manitoba.

What happens at Orientation?
