Queen's Students

The good news is that as a Queen’s student you do not need to apply in the traditional sense to study at Bader College. All you need to do is make sure you submit the Campus Change Form indicating which program you are interested in attending.

Please note, if you have any outstanding fees on your SOLUS account you will have to pay your outstanding fees before your application can be evaluated.

Non-Queen's Students

Non-Queen’s students will need to apply online through Queen’s University Admission Online Application Portal and submit the Course Selection Form to complete their application to Bader College’s upper year programs.

Once your application is received, Bader College’s Senior Admission Coordinator will provide a receipt of application and required documents in support of your application.

You should check your eligibility to study abroad and obtain a Letter of Permission at your home institution. This is usually coordinated by the study abroad office at your university or college.

You should also ensure that you meet the English Language Requirements for admission. Based on the documentation submitted in support of your application, you may be requested to provide an English language proficiency test.

Accepting your Offer of Admission

Check your emails! Eligible students for Bader College’s upper year programs will receive an offer of admission from To accept your offer of admission you will need to email confirming your acceptance by the deadline outlined in your offer of admission.

Attached to your offer of admission will be your Confirmation of Campus Change Letter/Letter of Admittance. This document confirms your enrolment at Bader College and is used for UK entry and applying for a visa (if necessary).

What is a Letter of Permission?

A Letter of Permission (LOP) is an official document issued by your home institution. The LOP allows you to take courses for credit at Bader College for a specified semester/program, transferring the credits back to your home institution for the purpose of completing your university degree.

Your academic advisor or the person issuing the LOP will typically look at the course content and your current transcript to assess whether you will be academically prepared for the course/program. Pre-requisite courses listed on the Bader College website are therefore not necessarily mandatory for non-Queen's students, but may be used as part of the assessment process by your home institution when granting an LOP. We will also make admission decisions based on current transcripts, but please note that without an LOP you may not be able to transfer credits back to your home institution.
