St. John’s is an ideal place for students to pursue their post-secondary education
Home to more than 20,000 students from over 118 countries, and with a diverse choice of what to study and where, Memorial University of Newfoundland (MUN) students are learning, researching, creating and engaging at Atlantic Canada’s most affordable university.
In 2021 alone, Memorial conferred 1,193 graduate degrees, including 112 PhD’s. That’s MUN’s highest numbers ever and an important milestone, “as graduate students are key to future regional prosperity and crucial in advancing knowledge, driving innovation, and making Canada more productive and globally competitive,” says Andrew Kim, Director, Graduate Enrolment Services for the School of Graduate Studies at Memorial University.
MUN also opened their new $350 million Core Science Facility in September 2021. Built to house both the Faculty of Science and the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science, the building is a centrepiece of MUN’s increased efforts to recruit both domestically and internationally.
For September 2022, MUN has announced new master of applied science in software engineering, master of artificial intelligence and master of data science programs, to meet a growing demand across technology sectors in the province, particularly in the high-tech industry.
Their new mechatronics engineering program, also launching September 2022, will be the first of its kind in Atlantic Canada, providing students an opportunity to meet the demands of the growing high-tech sector in careers such as advanced manufacturing systems, robotics, autonomous driving, unmanned aerial vehicles and remotely operated underwater vehicles, among others.
With some 25,000 students, and nearly 100 full-time and 300 part-time courses at 17 campus locations throughout Newfoundland and Labrador, College of the North Atlantic (CNA) is one of the largest post-secondary education skills training centres in Atlantic Canada. With a history dating back 50 years, CNA also has various partner universities in China.
With an affordable cost of living and world-class education opportunities, St. John’s is the ideal place for dedicated students to pursue their post-secondary education. And the natural, majestic wonders combined with the unique, vibrant culture of our province make for the perfect ‘campus.’
