MUN sees 8% increase in grad school applications

January 25, 2016

Memorial University has received nearly 8% more applications to graduate programs over last year, despite an impending increase in tuition. “We were wondering if [the tuition increase] would make an impact or not and it obviously hasn’t. I think it goes back to the complexity of why graduate students make the decisions they make,” said MUN Dean of Graduate Studies Faye Murrin. She pointed out that MUN’s fees are still the lowest in the country outside Quebec, and suggested that the increase could be due to expanding programs and a weakening economy. CBC
