Queen’s University Belfast operates a number of undergraduate and postgraduate exchange programmes with universities in Canada. Places on these programmes are allocated competitively. The universities that participate in these schemes have a strong international reputation for excellence in teaching and research.
Queen’s University, Kingston
University of Alberta, Edmonton
There are places on these schemes for two QUB students each year. Students are encouraged to go for a full year, though it is possible to go for one semester. Participants do not have to pay tuition costs, but are responsible for their own living costs. A travel award of £750 is given to each successful candidate.
Deadlines: Normally December of the academic year prior to the proposed study abroad. See the International Office (http://www.qub.ac.uk/ilo/exchanges/) web pages for further details and an application form.
