Welcome, Fall 2021
We are so happy you have chosen to study at Memorial University of Newfoundland (St. John's campus). Our team of advisors and student staff are here to help whether you need arrival information, or just a friendly chat. We can talk to you about health insurance, career options, immigration procedures and settling in to your campus life.
International students are an integral part of Memorial University. The Internationalization Office of Memorial University is here to welcome you and provide support you throughout your student journey at Memorial. Whether you have questions or just want to say hello, our advisers are happy to chat with you. The International Student Advisors are available 9:00am – 5:00pm Monday – Friday (closed 1 - 2 p.m.). You can also email your questions to the advisors at firstname.lastname@example.org
As we proceed toward welcoming students back to campus for Fall 2021, we must realize that the global pandemic with COVID-19 requires that we monitor and respond appropriately. Memorial University has created a resource page specific to that purpose, we continue to work closely with our Provincial Government with regards to COVID-19 protocols, and are guided by the Canadian Government's plans for welcoming students back to Canada.
Physically Returning to Canada and Newfoundland & Labrador
If you are planning to come to Canada and have received final approval from the Federal Government, do not book your travel without the authorization from Memorial University. Please visit our Arrivals Page for more information about the process of coming to or returning to Newfoundland and Labrador.
Authorization to enter and study in Canada is the responsibility of the Government of Canada through the department of Immigration, Refugee and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) and Canadian Border Service Authority (CBSA)
It is important that you seek the necessary authorization to enter Canada and keep abreast of changes related to travel authorization and restrictions.
All the best to you & stay safe,
Dr. Sonja Knutson
Memorial University of Newfoundland
