Eligibility

  • 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.
  • Student applicants are typically enrolled in second year in the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science and are scheduled to return to Queen's to complete their degree. However, applications from students in third or fourth year may be accepted but please speak to the Faculty Exchange Coordinator before proceeding with this

Selecting a partner university and courses

  • Visit the partner institutions website to get a feel of the university and its environment
  • Consider your interest in the city and country 
  • Consider affordability living in that country or city
  • Attend the International Exchange Fair in November to learn more about past student's experiences
  • Visit the Faculty's Exchange coordinator to discuss options available
  • Visit your department and explore your study plan with the program assistant and/or the Undergraduate chair
  • The number of exchange spots to each location is provided in order to help you in your decision making process
  • Consider the courses available in those institutions. Previously approved course substitutions can be found in the list of institutions in the table below

Please note: 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 2019-2020.

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.
