International students should also appraise themselves of the following before applying:
- English Language Test: English is the language of instruction and communication at Queen's.
- Immigration Requirements: There are many documents required by Immigration before you can attain your study permit. You must leave plenty of time to acquire these, so apply early to Queen's.
- Medical Coverage: It is compulsory to have the University Health Insurance Plan (UHIP) as an international student.
- International Tuition Award: a $5,000 tuition credit for each funding eligible year.
The above are per the guidelines as set out by the School of Graduate Studies and full explanations can be found on their International Students site.
