Welcome and Orientation

The Queen’s University International Centre (QUIC) provides welcome and orientation services continuously 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.  We prepare an International Welcome and Orientation Program for Fall and Winter.

The Queen’s University International Centre (QUIC) offers welcome activities as well as orientation sessions for newly-arriving international undergraduate and graduate degree-seeking students as well as students studying at Queen’s as part of a formal exchange agreement. QUIC provides extended hours to help ensure a safe and comfortable arrival in Kingston.
