Queen's University




Office of the Vice-Provost (International)

Queen's students are drawn from all across Canada and more than 123 countries around the world. International enrolment is 27% at the graduate level and nearly 11% at the undergraduate level.

Queen's encourages and provides support for numerous program initiatives designed to internationalize the curriculum and the learning environment, and places a strong emphasis on providing students with opportunities to gain international experience.

  • The university has a robust program of international exchange, involving bilateral agreements with more than 150 universities in 40 countries, and also has access to a further 60 universities through consortial exchanges.
  • Queen's operates an international campus, Bader College, at Herstmonceux Castle in East Sussex, U.K., that offers high-quality programs in humanities, social sciences, business and law. Two special features are small class size and a rich program of field studies that are integral to every course. Bader College accepts students from universities around the world.
  • The Queen's University International Centre (QUIC) provides many programs and services to support the international student population. QUIC also provides resources for students who are seeking to deepen their international engagement by participating in activities on campus that expose them to a global perspective.
