Student Experience

Undergraduate students in the Faculty of Arts and Science at Queen's have a multitude of exciting educational opportunities such as internships, study abroad programs, field studies, research and more. Check out the sections below to learn more. 

Queen’s Undergraduate Internship Program (QUIP)
The Queen’s Undergraduate Internship Program (QUIP) offers Queen’s students a chance to gain competitively paid work experience related to their subject of study during 12 to 16 month work terms in technology, languages, business, and industry. Due to the longer work term (compared to a 4-month co-op), employers are highly motivated to maximize their time and investment. This means that Internship students are offered the opportunity to manage more extensive and significant projects. 

QUIP internships are paid, professionally supervised, career-related positions designed to offer second or third year students the opportunity to learn about current advances, practices and technologies in business and industry. In return, students bring to the workplace creativity and a fresh approach, a high level of enthusiasm and commitment, a drive to succeed and a pronounced willingness to learn.
