International and exchange students welcome to Queen’s University and Kingston! We know you have travelled from far away and are looking forward to your educational experience in Canada. We at the Queen’s University International Centre (QUIC) look forward to meeting you and supporting you throughout your time on campus.
QUIC offers a wide range of programs and services designed to make you feel welcome and to support your academic and social success during your time at Queen’s. Our International Student Advisors and professional staff provide confidential advice and services on a range of topics such as immigration, work permits, health coverage, intercultural communications, English conversation support, income tax completion, peer support, and much more.
At Queen’s we welcome diversity. International students enrich our classrooms, our research initiatives, our campus, and our Kingston community. During your time with us please share your diversity, experiences and perspectives as you interact with fellow students, faculty members and staff, both inside and outside the lecture hall.
Finally, I invite you to drop in to QUIC to meet the QUIC team and to use the space often to relax and study with friends. Please consider QUIC your home away from home!
