More students than ever are looking at Memorial for graduate studies.

Applications for grad programs at Memorial are up four per cent this fall over last year.

Enrolment increase

While final numbers won’t be available until the Sept. 21 deadline to add courses, Memorial is looking at an increase in grad student enrolment of between two and 2.5 per cent, said Dr. Aimée Surprenant, dean, School of Graduate Studies.

“Our innovative and world-leading graduate programs continue to attract the best and the brightest from around the globe,” said Dr. Surprenant.

Graduate student tuition increased for the 2016-17 academic year to $953 per semester (based on the most common payment plan).  That is an increase of $220 per semester from fall 2015.

Fees well below average

Memorial’s fees for Canadian graduate students are still about 50 per cent of the national average.

Graduate students who come to Memorial from outside Canada typically pay $1,239 per semester, an increase of $286 per semester. The fee for international grad students is about 25 per cent of the national average.
