I want to apply

1. Choose a program and a campus

Memorial University offers a wide variety of programs. With over 100 degree options and multiple campuses to choose from, your choices are wide open. Check out what is offered at the St. John’s Campus, Grenfell Campus, the Marine Institute or online.

2. Review application deadlines

Application deadlines vary by program. We encourage you to submit your application well in advance of the posted deadlines.

If you are applying from outside of Canada and will need a study permit please ensure you have sufficient time to process your study permit application

3. Check the admission requirements

All applicants must meet general admission requirements before being considered for admission to a competitive-entry program.

If you are taking courses at a university or college for the first time, you will first be considered for admission under a general admission program such as bachelor of arts or bachelor of science.

If you are successful with general admission and have applied to a competitive-entry program, your application will be forwarded to that faculty/school for consideration. You will hear from them separately.
