Department of History

The History department anticipates admitting a small number of highly qualified international students to both its MA and PhD programs this year. International Tuition Awards (ITAs) are likely to be available which will reduce the gap between domestic and international tuition fees significantly. The department strongly encourages interested applicants who are not Canadian citizens or permanent residents to contact the chair of graduate studies and members of our graduate faculty in their proposed areas of study well before the application deadline to discuss the studying at Queen's as an international student, the program, supervision, and funding opportunities. Further information can also be found through the School of Graduate Studies, the Office of the Registrar, and the Queen's International Centre.

Queen's International provides information for international students and describes the services that Queen's University offers to international students:

The School of Graduate Studies provides:

  • an outline of tuition fees and estimated living costs for international students.
  • information about medical coverage
  • A description of immigration requirements for international students coming to Queen's
  • Training for international students who would like to hold teaching assistantships
