University Academic Calendar 2023-2024

Perched on Canada’s North Atlantic coast, Memorial University of Newfoundland is a destination for discovery. A beacon for the 21st-century explorer, Newfoundland and Labrador’s university is a unique learning community founded as a living memorial to those who lost their lives in the First World War — "that in freedom of learning their cause and sacrifice might not be forgotten." Today more than 19,000 students from over 115 countries come together to discover. From the classics to advanced technology, the University offers certificate, diploma, undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate programs across five campuses, numerous locations and online. A global network of almost 100,000 accomplished alumni throughout the world strengthens Memorial University of Newfoundland’s capacity and reputation for leadership in world-class research, teaching and public engagement.

Searching Within the Calendar

The search bar at the top of each page of Memorial’s website can be used to search for specific words or phrases. To search within the full Calendar or within specific sections of the Calendar, here are some useful tips:

  • You can search the entire Calendar by adding the following web address “” to the search bar after your search term. For example, to search for the word “ocean” anywhere in the Calendar, it would look like this: ocean

  • Putting a multi-word search term in quotation marks will search for that specific phrase. For example, to search for “natural resources” anywhere in the Calendar: "natural resources"

  • You can search specific sections of the Calendar by being more specific with the web address. For example, to search for the term “leadership” in the Grenfell Campus section: leadership Or search for the term “entrepreneurship" in the St. John’s Campus / Faculty of Business Administration section of the Calendar: entrepreneurship

Tip: Instead of typing out the web address, navigate to the section of interest, copy the web address from the browser address bar and paste it after “site:” into the search bar.
