Financing Learning Abroad

While some programs can be expensive, not all are. For example, did you know that if you go on exchange you don’t necessarily have to pay more than you would if you stayed in Kingston? This is because you still pay Queen's tuition and the cost of living in different countries can be cheaper than it is in Canada.

A number of general scholarships and bursaries are available specifically for students participating in formal exchange programs. There is also substantial financial assistance available for students attending the Bader International Study Centre (BISC). Some departments also offer bursaries and scholarships for students studying or researching abroad.

Queen's awards are generally not available for programs which require the payment of fees to an institution outside of Queen's. However, there are other external granting agencies that offer financial support for study abroad, and millions of dollars go unclaimed by students every year.
