Learning Abroad

We Are Upgrading Our Learning Abroad Site

Welcome to our Global Connections page. We are in the process of redeveloping our study abroad portal. The new home - www.mun.ca/goabroad - is now available to you. 

There you will find information on learning abroad opportunities (exchange, study abroad, research abroad), supports and information for students visiting Memorial University (inbound exchange & visiting students), as well as details on our international partnerships. 


Supporting learning abroad opportunities while ensuring the safety of our students remains a top priority for the Internationalization Office during the COVID-19 pandemic. While many of our global partners have adjusted their student mobility programs to online, virtual, and remote exchanges, we encourage you to continue to plan for your future participation in either virtual or physical exchanges where and when possible.

Currently, the Government of Canada has issued advisories on international travel and there are safety issues to consider in your planning and preparation. 

We are here to guide you. For more questions or concerns, please connect with us at international@mun.ca
