Visiting Research Student: a student who is registered in a graduate level program at a home university and wants to register at Queen's for non-degree study to join a research group. Upon the recommendation of a research supervisor and the Graduate Department/Program, such a student can be accepted by the School of Graduate Studies as a Visiting Research Student at Queen's University for a period up to one year.
