Resumption in most faculties will now be Jan. 11 instead of Jan. 6

Memorial University has decided to delay the official start date of its winter semester in most programs at its St. John’s campus, Grenfell Campus in Corner Brook and the Marine Institute.

Originally, the return date for winter classes was Wednesday, Jan. 6. It now will be Monday, Jan. 11.

“I hope that extending the break by a few days... will help to reduce the stress in the winter term,” said Dr. Mark Abrahams, provost and vice-president (academic).



Abraham’s quote appeared in a story in the online version of the MUN Gazette (gazette.mun.ca), used to announce the delay.

Due to what are described as “unique program delivery constraints”, the school says exceptions have been approved for the Faculty of Medicine, the Faculty of Nursing and the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science. 

As a result, classes in these academic units will resume as previously scheduled on Jan.6.
