Information for International Students

International Students

International graduate students admitted to full-time study at Queen’s University pay a higher tuition fee than domestic students. International students, however, are eligible for the International Tuition Award. These awards are limited, and are highly competitive.

International Tuition Award International graduate students admitted to full-time study at Queen's will receive an International Tuition Award (ITA).

Under this program, each new international full-time student receives an ITA to be held during his or her funding-eligible years of study. The annual award of $5,000 is applied as a tuition credit.

For more information about the ITA, please contact the Graduate Coordinator in Gender Studies.

Comprehension of the English language

At Queen's, English is the language of instruction and communication, except for the language departments. Proficiency in English is, therefore, a prerequisite for admission. Those applicants whose native languages do not include English will be required to obtain satisfactory standing in an English Language Proficiency Test as part of the application process, and before final acceptance is granted.

For full details on minimum scores required for the various English language tests go the School of Graduate Studies website.
