Next Steps for a Smooth Transition

We know going off to university isn’t easy for any student, and it can be especially challenging for those also moving to a new country. At Queen’s, you’re never taking that journey alone, and we are here to help along the way. Take a look at the next steps for incoming students, to support a smooth transition to Queen's.


Traveling to and Entering Canada

When heading to Queen’s from abroad, you’ll need to keep track of a few important details. Here’s a helpful guide to keep yourself on track to Queen’s.

We are happy to introduce the iCent App and the iCent Arrival Module for ALL Queen’s new and returning international students! Signing up for the iCent App ensures we have the proper information to support you as you transition to life at Queen’s University. Students who have accepted their offer are strongly encouraged to download the App, create their profile, and explore the resources.

To come to Canada, you must apply for a study permit. Getting a permit can take several months, so be sure to begin the process as soon as you accept your offer of admission. Follow the Immigration Canada guide offered by Queen's University International Centre (QUIC).
