Independent Study Abroad
Independent study abroad allows students the opportunity to study at international universities with which Queen's does not have a formal exchange agreement, and on programs offered overseas by Canadian universities. The major difference is that a student who takes the independent study abroad route applies as a visiting student to the university and pays the relevant student fees to the host university.
Examples of study abroad programs include:
- the Canadian Field Studies in Africa program managed by McGill University,
- the Trent-in-Ecuador or Trent-in-Ghana programs managed by Trent University, or
- the Dalhousie Cuba Semester program managed by Dalhousie University.
To participate in a study abroad program, or study at a university abroad which does not have a partnership agreement with Queen’s, you will require an International Letter of Permission from the IPO.
