The agreement with Blyth Educational Travel to offer Queen’s-Blyth Worldwide (QBW), a study abroad and experiential learning program for faculty and students from Queen’s and other universities, will not be renewed for 2015.
“The decision not to renew QBW beyond 2014 is primarily based on enrolment in the program,” says Provost and Vice-Principal (Academic) Alan Harrison. “Although student numbers were well below initial projections, we received a lot of positive feedback from both students and instructors who participated in the program, and I do want to extend our thanks to everyone who has contributed to Queen’s-Blyth and made possible its international learning opportunities.”
QBW will run as planned this year. Students have until April 1 to apply for programs in Costa Rica, France, Italy, and Spain. For more information or to apply, visit the website
Queen’s offers a wide range of other international opportunities to students and faculty members, including the Bader International Study Centre and many exchange and study abroad opportunities. The university also has active undergraduate exchange agreements with 148 institutions in 46 countries worldwide.
