Short-term Programs

Memorial University offers several shorter programs (five weeks long or less) for those people who are looking to improve their English skills but who have time constraints and cannot attend a full semester. While the content of these programs does vary, they all contain English language classes and specialized workshops, in addition to other fun activities. These programs are for language learners of all ability levels, and the classes provide specific instruction in speaking, listening, reading and writing.

The program tuition includes the following:

  • English classes (approximate class size 12-18)
  • Instructional materials
  • Housing
  • Airport greeting
  • All cultural events and activities
  • Access to a multimedia computer lab, the university libraries, and other university facilities
