U of W ranks third in the country in terms of tuition fees, which are rather below the national average university tuition fees. The University of Winnipeg
is ranked 13th among national universities in the ranking of the authoritative Canadian publication Maclean's magazine.
The university has earned high marks for academic excellence, strong teaching staff, education of indigenous peoples, development in solving environmental problems, healthy nutrition for students, small class sizes and a variety of campuses.
