For information concerning fees and charges, admission/readmission to the University, and general academic regulations (undergraduate), refer to UNIVERSITY REGULATIONS.

1    SCHOOL DESCRIPTION
The Fisheries and Marine Institute was established in 1964 as the College of Fisheries, Navigation, Marine Engineering and Electronics. It became affiliated with the University in 1992 and since then has continued to grow as a world-class centre of marine technology and education. The official name is the Fisheries and Marine Institute of Memorial University of Newfoundland, but it is commonly known as the Marine Institute.

The main campus of the Marine Institute overlooks the city of St. John's from within Pippy Park, which has extensive hiking trails and recreational facilities. This building houses a flume tank, a seafood processing plant, freshwater aquaculture research and development facilities, and extensive marine simulation facilities. The Dr. C. R. Barrett Library, located at this campus, houses one of Canada's largest marine-related collections. In addition, the Institute manages the Offshore Safety and Survival Centre in Foxtrap and Stephenville and a marine base on the south side of St. John’s harbour.

The Marine Institute provides a full range of programs focusing on fisheries and marine science and technology. In addition to undergraduate and graduate degrees, the Institute offers advanced diplomas, diplomas of technology, and technical and vocational certificates. The Institute also runs a variety of short courses and industrial response programs. Many courses, including most courses in degree programs, are available through the Marine Institute Learning Services (MILES) website, www.mi.mun.ca/miles.

All programs and courses are designed to provide students with the knowledge and skills required for success in the workforce. The Institute seeks the advice of industrial program advisory committees in the ongoing development and review of programs. Whenever appropriate, it submits programs for national accreditation, providing graduates with mobility in professional employment.
