Graduate students and faculty members conduct and present their research internationally and they collaborate with research partners around the globe. The Faculty has a number of institutional agreements that support this international research activity.
Study exchanges at the graduate level are facilitated by two of the Faculty's institutional agreements:
The University's international exchange agreements further support graduate study exchanges:
In addition to the research and study opportunities provided by the Faculty and University, graduate students are encouraged to create their own international research and study opportunities.
To be eligible for a study exchange, students must be registered at the Faculty of Education and they must have completed at least one term of their graduate program. Graduate students studying outside of Ontario should consult the Graduate Studies in Education: A Handbook, Section 15.1 (Emergency Support Program for Students) and Section 15.2 (Off-campus Activity Safety Policy (OCASP).
International students interested in coming to the Faculty of Education on a graduate exchange program should apply through their home university. They are required to meet the minimum program admission requirements (see M.Ed. Program Information, AWIES Program Information, and Ph.D. Program Information for admission requirements), but they do not need to pass an English language proficiency test (sufficient English language skills to function in an English-speaking environment are recommended).
If an exchange agreement between the student's home university and Queen’s does not exist, students can apply for admission through the School of Graduate Studies:
