About

We are a multi-campus, multi-disciplinary, public, teaching/research university committed to excellence in everything we do. We strive to have national and global impact, while fulfilling our social mandate to provide access to university education for the people of the province and to contribute to the social, cultural, scientific and economic development of Newfoundland and Labrador and beyond.

Founded in 1925 as a memorial to Newfoundland's war dead, Memorial University College was elevated to degree-granting status in 1949. When Newfoundland became a province of Canada that year, one of the first legislative actions of the new government was to pass An Act Respecting the Memorial University of Newfoundland. The Act specifies the role, responsibilities, structure and other governance and administrative aspects of the province’s only university.

Today about 19,000 students are enrolled in Memorial’s undergraduate, graduate and professional programs which span a wide range of disciplines. Memorial is committed to student-centred and experiential learning in multiple modes and settings. The university has key locations are in St. John's and Corner Brook in Newfoundland, Happy Valley-Goose Bay in Labrador, and Harlow in England and offers extensive on-line courses and programs.

Memorial University of Newfoundland
Great if you're from St.John's and love your high school friends
rated 3 out of 5 stars
At MUN you really get what you pay for. Facilities aren't great and I was taught by many graduate students as opposed to actual profs.

The education is not so bad but just the town here is a bit too small and boring sometimes. There isn't much to do apart from outdoor activities but it helps to focus on studies. The teachers in the university understand the students and the workload are fair enough, depending on the courses and the teachers.

About Memorial university
rated 5 out of 5 stars
Personally, going to study at Memorial University is a dream-come-true for me. The school is relatively the cheapest in the whole of Canada. Despite this, they offer sound and quality education over there. They have got a lot of Professors and doctors willing to help you with any challenge you have. Although, the school's calendar is very fast but its worth it all along.
