Beyond the classroom

Students in Spanish have several ways to get involved in Spanish beyond the classroom. You can come to a Spanish film screening during LLCU International Film night , visit the Spanish Club meeting or join SALSA student club. Attending events at the Queen’s International Student Centre will give you the opportunity to immerse yourself in other cultures and get to know exchange students from Spanish speaking countries!

  • the academic and personal development of international students, other international members of the Queen’s community, and their families;
  • the academic and personal development of Queen’s students, staff and faculty interested in Education Abroad; and
  • the internationalization of the campus by working with university departments, offices, groups and individuals to enhance and diversify the international learning environment at Queen’s through educational and training activities.
