QBridge and QuARMS

QBridge is an English language pathway to Queen’s University for students who are academically competitive for admission to a Queen’s undergraduate degree program, but who do not meet the required admission standard for English language proficiency. The QBridge programs ensure that students are linguistically, academically, and culturally prepared to complete their Queen’s undergraduate degree studies.

  • QBridge Accelerated is an intensive eight-week summer course, for students with a certain minimum standardized English language test score.
  • QBridge English for Academic Purposes (EAP) is for students who do not meet the requirements for QBridge Accelerated but are academically competitive for admission.

For more information on these programs, including language test score minimums, please consult Queen's School of English.

QuARMS is a unique opportunity for high school students to apply for entry to medical school after only two years of undergraduate study in the Arts, Science, Computing, Life Sciences and Biochemistry or Health Sciences.

  • Be a Canadian Citizen or a Permanent Resident of Canada 
  • Identify as Black African, Black Caribbean, Black North American, or a multi-racial person who has and identifies with their Black ancestry or Indigenous 

Applicants must meet the academic requirements of the eligible programs to which they are applying (see How to Apply more information)
Applicants must be currently in high school and must be enrolled in the final year of high school when they apply
