Applicants will be assessed for English usage and style (specifically, grammar, vocabulary, sentence and essay structure, spelling, etc). A maximum of twenty points will be awarded.

The application deadline for the 2023-2024 session has passed.If you have already submitted your application, you can still register for any open session of the writing exercise if you have not already done so.
If you have not submitted your application, please do not register for the writing exercise.

These sessions will be held in the Education Building at the University of Manitoba, Fort Garry Campus.

Applicants residing in Winnipeg or surrounding areas (within a 2 hour drive to Winnipeg) are asked to attend one of these sessions. Applicants who do not reside in Winnipeg or surrounding areas are permitted to complete the writing skills exercise at a centre closer to them. In addition, an applicant may request the services of Student Accessibility Services. Contact the Coordinator for Admission to the Faculty of Education, Desiree Kennedy (Desiree.Kennedy@umanitoba.ca), to make arrangements for these situations. Applicants must present photo ID for entrance to the writing session. In addition, applicants should be reminded that they can only attend one of the sessions scheduled.
