International Exchanges

Queen's Law students can study for a term at another university with which the Faculty has an exchange agreement and gain full academic credit towards their J.D.  Students pay tuition at the domestic rate to Queen's University for the term they spend abroad.​

Exchanges are allocated based on selection criteria including:

  • Academic standing
  • The academic appropriateness of the exchange
  • Evidence of good character and the ability to represent Queen's Law
  • Personal / family reasons for the exchange, language facility, etc.

Queen's students on exchange must take a full course load at the host university.  Fifteen upper-year course credits are transferred to the student's J.D. degree upon production of an official transcript from the host university demonstrating that the courses have been successfully completed. Regardless of the course load taken, students may not transfer more than 15 credits.
