Destination: Learning Abroad


The open courtyard of the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque

Where you can go depends, in large part, on what type of experience you are seeking. 

Faculty-led Study Abroad

Usually led by a Memorial University Faculty member, these programs entail bringing a group of Memorial University students to an international destination for the better part of a semester abroad. 

Bilateral Exchange

Memorial University has formed more than 100 student exchange agreement relationships with higher education institutions around the globe. Students can go individually (or in small numbers) to these institutions, enjoying a tuition waiver at the host school (tuition fees continue to be paid to Memorial University).
