2. Make the application

[X] Close

The General Undergraduate Application for Admission/Readmission is available online. The application fee is $100 CAD for international students. This fee is payable by credit card (MasterCard or Visa only). If students are applying online, they should remember their login ID and PIN so they can return to their application later if needed.

While the online application for admission is recommended to enable students to check the progress of their applications, paper applications are available to download at www.mun.ca/regoff/forms.php. Paper applications must be accompanied by the appropriate application fee which may be paid by credit card, certified cheque, or money order.

The priority application deadlines for general admission are as follows:

  • March 1 for the Fall semester (starting September)
  • October 1 for the Winter semester (starting January)
  • February 1 for the Spring semester (starting May)

The main intake for most programs is in the Fall semester, and for some programs Fall is the only intake available. Arts, Business, and Science programs can typically be started in any of the three semesters.

3. Is English as a Second Language training required?

Students who do not meet the minimum English language proficiency requirements may be granted provisional undergraduate admission if they also apply for Memorial University’s English as a Second Language program. A separate application form is required, and the application fee is $150 CAD. Program details, fees, and application instructions can be found at: www.mun.ca/esl/12week/.

5. Look for housing

[X] Close

There is a separate application for student housing on campus. We recommend that students apply early, and it is not necessary to wait to be accepted to the university to apply for housing. For details on living on-campus and off-campus in St. John’s, visit http://www.mun.ca/hfcs/. For details about living on-campus and off-campus in Corner Brook, visit www.grenfell.mun.ca/res.

The International Student Advising (ISA) office can provide information on housing for international students. To speak with a Housing Coordiantor please visit http://www.mun.ca/isa/housing/.

6. Get ready

[X] Close

We encourage you and your students to review our international student checklist, which covers such issues as study permits, course registration, airport pick-up and orientation. The checklist can be found here: www.mun.ca/isa/new/index.php.

Please bear in mind that the application process for the entry visa and the study permit happens directly through Citizenship and Immigration Canada and NOT through Memorial University. A letter of acceptance from Memorial University will be necessary to complete your Study Permit application.

If you have any questions, email undergradagents@mun.ca.
