Exchange students are those who are completing a semester or a full year at another school, often in another country. These international students come to Queen’s University from far and wide to take part in a one-of-a-kind educational and social experience. The Queen’s and Kingston community are thrilled to welcome all those students who have chosen to spend their time abroad in Canada, and the university has many resources available for these students.

NEWTS Week is a wonderful opportunity for these exchange students to meet friends from their countries of origin, from all around the world and current Queen’s students. NEWTS week hopes to provide a foundation for academic excellence and positive social experiences throughout the students’ stay in Canada.

Some helpful resources which Queen’s offers to International and Exchange students include:

Queen’s University International Center:
