Who are AHSS Visiting Students?

AHSS Visiting Students are students who study in the Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences (AHSS) on a short term basis from a partner institution.

Students usually study on a Study Abroad, International Exchange or Erasmus Exchange programme for one semester or a full academic year. We also welcome students to our annual International Summer Schools and throughout the calendar year from partner institutions as part of bespoke Visiting Faculty-led programmes, as well as occasional research Visiting Students to our Schools who facilitate research collaborations.

Studying in AHSS

The Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences (AHSS) is a busy, multidisciplinary community of learners dedicated to using the wide range of subjects within the arts and humanities to make a difference to the lives or ordinary people; locally, nationally and internationally.

We strive to support AHSS Visiting Students during their time with us in the Faculty, with regular drop in service and a weekly e-newsletter to keep you connected with what is happening on campus.

Your School

AHSS Visiting Students are afforded a large degree of flexibility when studying with us in AHSS.

You may select modules from across different Schools, but you will be allocated to one academic School who are responsible for you during your time with us at Queen's. This allocation is usually based on your module selection and / or your home major or discipline of study. Study Abroad students may also have more flexibility than those on an Erasmus programme.
