Fall 2020

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This semester the IPO is introducing a number of virtual webinars that focus on different topics related to studying abroad and exchange.

A couple of days after the final webinar of each series the International Programs Office will be posting an official recording of that final session with closed captioning on this landing page so you are able to review the webinars you were unable to attend! If you have any concerns about the recording, please email us at ipo@queensu.ca.

We ask that you please register in advance for the sessions you are interested in attending so we can effectively prepare our webinars. Descriptions are subject to change. Sessions may be added as our office adapts to feedback throughout the Fall 2020 semester. All edits will be made here on this webinar series landing page.

Interested in meeting in a smaller setting to ask specific questions? We have an IPO Zoom Room regularly taking place throughout the Fall Semester. Find more details and see the full schedule on the Events page
