Offering more than 100 degree programs, Memorial University is one of the largest universities in Atlantic Canada.
Over 40% of Memorial’s research is ocean-related (in just the Faculty of Science it’s 68%). If there’s research happening in the North Atlantic, there’s a high likelihood Memorial University is involved. In fact, Memorial is a partner with the Ocean Frontier Institute, a $220 million collaborative research initiative aimed at harnessing the vast potential of the world’s ocean. Memorial is also part of Canada’s Ocean Supercluster, a private sector-led partnership using innovation and commercialization to drive increased sustainable economic growth from our oceans.
Faced with a labor shortage and low profile of diversity, the province of Newfoundland and Labrador in Canada has been making an effort to attract and retain newcomers. Guided by Bronfenbrenner’s (1979) ecological systems theory, this qualitative study investigates the challenges faced by newcomer youth, including permanent residents coming as immigrants or refugees and temporary residents with student visas or work permits, who were either already in the work force or could join it in the immediate future. Major themes surfacing from the data include inadequate public transportation, limited social interaction, language barriers, and dim employment prospects.
For international students, Memorial is an ideal exchange destination. As of 2017, there were over 2,800 international students at Memorial comprising 15.8 per cent of the student population. Memorial boasts an extremely high level of student satisfaction, and more than nine out of 10 students would recommend the University to a friend. We have hundreds of programs to choose from, and our small classroom sizes provide students the opportunity to learn in an enriching and welcoming environment. Memorial also welcomes visiting scholars, researchers, and international delegations.

The Committee on the Accreditation of Canadian Medical Schools (CACMS) ensures that Canadian medical faculties’ MD programs meet the quality expected when producing tomorrow’s doctors. Medical schools demonstrating compliance are afforded accreditation, a necessary condition for a program’s graduates to be licensed as physicians.
