Study at Memorial



It takes a lot of courage to think about studying in a new country - truly, an explorer's mentality. At Memorial University you can share a unique educational experience with over 2,300 other international students from more than 100 countries around the world. Welcome to Canada, and welcome to Memorial!


Where we're located

A three hour flight east from Toronto or a five hour flight west from London, England, our St. John’s Campus offers old-world hospitality in a modern, cosmopolitan city. Bordering on the Atlantic, you are 20 minutes from some of the most breathtaking ocean vistas imaginable; truly an inspiring place to broaden your mind.


Along with the main St. John's Campus, we also have the Marine Institute, located in St. John's; the Grenfell Campus, located in Corner Brook; and the Harlow Campus, located in Harlow, Essex, United Kingdom.


Student support

Memorial is a leader in cooperative education programs. Several of our programs offer you the opportunity to pursue paid, work placements as part of the degree program. Beyond that, we have part-time job programs designed specifically to fit between your busy academic schedule. Learn more about working as a student at Memorial.

With more than 2,300 international students, you are bound to find a student group with similar backgrounds or interests to your own. There are faith-based groups, national groups, activities-based groups and many more. And, if there is not a group that interests you, you can always start your own.

We are all concerned about safety. Fortunately, Newfoundland boasts one of the lowest crime rates in North America. But to make you feel extra safe and secure we have our own patrol officers who keep an eye on things morning, noon and night, plus WalkSafe and SafeDrive programs run by our students’ union, MUNSU. On top of that, we have a series of tunnels and skywalks (the MUNnels) that connect many of our buildings keeping you safe (and dry) through all kinds of weather.
