Exchange Application Information & Process

This page provides you with information on the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science Exchange Process for 2018-2019. 

The 2018-2019 Exchange Application is now available. You may either stop into Student Services (Room 300, Beamish-Munro Hall) to pick one up, or download a copy by clicking here:  Application Form

  • Students application for exchange in 2018-2019 are encouraged to consider applying for our needs-based Exchange Bursary. For further information, please click here: Bursary Application

Applications will be due on January 9th, 2018.

Applicants must have a minimum GPA of 2.7, no outstanding First Year course failures, completed the EPT testing successfully and are eligible to travel outside of Canada to their country of choice.

You will list up to 4 choices of university locations, based on our list of partnerships. Your application will be expected to include a ROUGH DRAFT study plan for each of the universities that you wish to be considered for, in the program.

There are many ways that you can determine what courses you can study at the various universities. We have links to our partner sites on the main Exchange page. We have also provided links to SOME of our key partners, that provide previously approved course substitutions. These previously approved courses are only meant to be a guide for you. THERE IS NO GUARANTEE that these same courses and weighting thereof, would be the same or approved for you in 2018-2019.

You will also note that the number of exchange spots to each location will be provided in order to help you in your decision making process.

NOTE: Exchange is meant to be an experiential learning opportunity. This requires some flexibility on behalf of the participants. Many students have been successful in going on exchange, and still completing their Queen's Engineering degree in 4 years, but this is not always the case. We will do our best to advise you of the suitability of your plan, for a 4 year completion, at the time of advising your of your application outcome. However, we cannot ensure there will be extenuating circumstances at your host university which may change the outcome of your study timelines. Please bear this in mind when applying.
