The International Programs Office (IPO) can help launch you on a voyage of discovery.
Each year, hundreds of Queen's students earn credit toward their undergraduate degrees while studying in another country. Whether you wish to complete a full course load during a year or term abroad, or earn a single credit during a short-term program in another country, the IPO will work with you and your academic department(s) to identify a program suited to your learning goals. We urge you to consider all of your international study options as early as possible, so that you may plan ahead to incorporate a study abroad experience within your undergraduate program.
Enhance your education by including a formal international academic component in your degree studies. The Faculty of Arts and Science offers a Certificate in International Studies that is open to any student pursuing a degree at Queen's. Combining language acquisition with cultural and interdisciplinary learning and a study abroad component, the International Studies Certificate is awarded with your degree when you graduate, and is recognized on your academic transcript. With the International Studies Certificate, Queen's is helping to prepare citizens and leaders for an increasingly global society.
Queen's commitment to international education is supported by a variety of scholarships and bursaries, designed to aid students on exchange or at the BISC in meeting the costs of these valued educational opportunities. Information on financial assistance for study abroad is available through the International Programs Office and the Office of Student Awards.
