Welcome to Memorial University

We are delighted that you have chosen Memorial University to further your education. It is our hope that we can welcome you virtually (and in-person if the necessary conditions are met) during the 2020-2021 academic year to help support your studies. 

Notice for Students travelling from NS, NB and PEI

Part of the arrivals process to Newfoundland and Labrador involves a minimum 14-day self-isolation period. Since July, travellers coming from one of the Atlantic Provinces (Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, New Brunswick) were exempt from the self-isolation requirement if they showed no signs or symptoms of COVID-19.

However, on Monday, November 23rd, it was announced that Newfoundland and Labrador will temporarily withdraw from the "Atlantic Bubble." This will be in effect until Wednesday, December 9th, 2020, subject to review.

This means that ALL students (new, returning, domestic, international) travelling from outside the province of Newfoundland and Labrador must self-isolate upon returning to the province.

These students must also complete the forms through this site to inform the institution of your travel so that we may support you in the mandatory self-isolation period.

Before proceeding, please carefully read the following information:

  1. Online (Remote) Delivery of Classes for the 2020-2021 Academic Year

    For the Fall Semester, 2020 and the Winter Semester, 2021, classes will take place in a primarily remote and online teaching and learning environment. This means that you will have the option to start or continue your Memorial University education from the comfort of your home wherever you are in the world.

    It is important to note that unless you have been expressly advised by your department (supervisor), faculty or school, you are not expected to travel to Newfoundland and Labrador to commence or continue your studies in fall 2020 or winter 2021.

    Memorial’s main priorities are to ensure that all current students are able to successfully progress through their programs, and that all new students have the best possible start to their academic experience at Memorial, despite the challenges associated with ongoing COVID-19 global pandemic.

  2. Domestic Students Will be Required to Self-Isolate Upon Entry to Newfoundland & Labrador

    If you are travelling to Memorial University from the other provinces and territories of Canada, you will be required to self-isolate for 14 days upon your arrival. 

In order to prepare for your arrival, please proceed to the Arrival Information and Self Isolation Form.
