Welcome New Graduate Students

Fall Welcome is written in white, against an orange background covered in leaves.


Congratulations again on your admission to graduate school! We’re excited that you’ll be starting your graduate studies at Memorial University. The School of Graduate Studies (SGS), your academic unit, and all of Memorial’s service units are here to support you at every stage of your journey. Please ensure you review and follow the steps for new graduate students (including information on registration, fees payment, IT services for graduate students, etc.) before you commence your program. Also, please review the resources for graduate students page for specific information about the semester.

To help you prepare and start your graduate program on the right foot, we’ve pulled together a number of online meetings, information sessions, and resources that are available for you to view. These include the welcome sessions for new graduate students, as well as our online orientation (called MUN 501), and other resources and workshops. Please check back as we prepare these resources for Fall 2022.



Fall Orientation 2022

Open Meetings for New Graduate Students: Join other new graduate students to meet online each week, and learn everything you need to know before starting your journey at Memorial University. Faculty and staff from SGS, academic units, and the Internationalization Office will be present to answer any questions you might have as you prepare to commence your graduate program. These Q&A-style sessions are designed to get you acquainted with the procedures, opportunities and supports available to you as a graduate student at MUN.

Beginning your Immigration Journey at Memorial: These sessions are designed for students who are newly admitted to Memorial for the Fall 2022 semester or who have recently arrived in Canada, but began their studies outside of Canada. Representatives will review important information that you need to know about your immigration status to set you up for success on your immigration journey as an international student at Memorial.

Pre-Arrival Orientation Webinars: Will you be a new graduate student this fall? Please join these weekly sessions to learn everything you need to know about graduate studies, including available supports, first week activities, and tips for success for your upcoming journey at Memorial University.

EDGE workshops: There are many other opportunities for you to get engaged and connected now as a graduate student. Please consider the free online resources and workshops on academic and professional skills development available to you now through our EDGE website.
