International Welcome & Orientation Fall 2019

International students who chose to arrive to Kingston a bit early are invited to join us for the optional QUIC Orientation from August 26th-30th, 2019.  These activities give students an opportunity to visit QUIC, meet others and learn about Queen’s and Kingston. Students are not required to participate in these activities; the schedule is for those who choose to arrive to Kingston a bit early. Students arriving after August 30th are invited to visit QUIC and pick up their Welcome Package.
