 How to Apply


We’re excited that you’re interested in pursuing a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Visual Arts) at Grenfell Campus!

Here’s what you need to know:

  • You must apply separately to the visual arts program AND to Memorial University admissions, satisfying the requirements of both before being able to take visual arts studio courses
  • There are three components to the visual arts application:
    1. A completed BFA Visual Arts Application Form
    2. Statement of Intent (500 words max.)
    3. Portfolio of your artwork (15 – 20 images, original pieces or combination)
  • The deadline to submit your application form, statement of intent and portfolio is March 1 for the following fall semester. Late applications will be considered but priority will be given to applications received by March 1.
  • Submit your documents to the Grenfell Campus Registrar in digital or hard copy format. All late applications must be submitted in digital format.

If at first you don’t succeed. . .

Each year we accept a limited number of students who show the highest commitment to their work and whose academic standing shows potential for success at Memorial University. If you are not accepted into the program one year, you may apply again the following year. If you cannot register for visual arts studio courses, you may be able to enrol in non-studio courses and electives required towards a BFA visual arts degree. Good performance in these courses, plus the submission of a new portfolio, will improve your chances next time.


Thank you for considering the visual arts program at Grenfell Campus, Memorial University, in Corner Brook, Newfoundland and Labrador.
