International students: Learn everything you need to know about your health coverage

May 3, 2022 — 

Moving to a new country to study means learning about a lot of things: academics, adapting to a new culture, making new friends.

It’s also important to learn about your health coverage, so you know what to expect when you need it.

The International Centre is offering three information sessions on the Manitoba International Student Health Plan (MISHP) as part of International Student Welcome and Orientation so that international students can learn all about their health coverage while they are registered as a student at the University of Manitoba.

“We recommend that all new students and also current international students attend one of these sessions,” says Gitan Armour, Acting Director of the International Centre. “It is very important to learn about your health coverage so you know how it works before you need it.”

The sessions are facilitated by the Studentcare office and they will explain aspects of the Manitoba International Student Health Plan, how it works and how you can access the care. The Studentcare representative will also be able to answer any questions international students might have.

Register for one of the three sessions today.  The content is the same at all three sessions.

Wednesday, May 4 | 1 – 2 p.m. CST  

Monday, May 9 | 9 – 10 a.m. CST 

Thursday, May 12 | 11:30 a.m. -12:30 p.m. CST
