Maritime students head to Memorial for lower tuition

July 3, 2007

In the past 7 years, the number of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and PEI students attending Memorial University in Newfoundland has increased ninefold. (In 2005, 836 students from the Maritime provinces were at Memorial.)  Memorial says it is aggressively recruiting across the country and internationally.  Tuition at Memorial has been frozen since 2003, offering students "more bang for their buck."  MPHEC reports that tuition is becoming a critical factor for maritime students.  CBC
