Welcome and Orientation
The Queen’s University International Centre (QUIC) provides welcome and orientation services whenever a student, scholar or staff member arrives. Packages of information about our programs and services as well as those provided by other parts of Queen’s University are included.
January 2015 Starts
While not as extensive as the September Welcome and Orientation schedule, the January schedule provides useful preparation for new students. The Queen’s University International Centre also offers extended hours during this period. This is meant to provide a safe, comfortable environment to meet other students and settle in upon your arrival at Queen’s.
Students should also check with their academic faculty regarding faculty-specific orientation activities and sessions.
Exchange students are invited to participate in activities offered by students through NEWTS (New, Exchange, and Worldly Transfer Students) on January 9 and 10.
Starting at any other time
Queen’s University International Centre staff are available to provide information about banking, housing, orientation to campus and the wider community. New international students are encouraged to pick-up an information package about QUIC, its services and opportunities as well as services provided by other groups to all members of the Queen’s Community.
Whenever you come to the Centre you will find tea and coffee, local and national newspapers, computers (and wireless internet access), friendly conversation, and a place to meet new people.
