​University Wide-Exchanges

Queen's University also has several university-wide exchanges in which Law students can occasionally participate.

Law students may apply to participate in the following university-wide exchanges, although places may not be available for law students every year:

  1. The University of the West Indies at Cave Hill in Barbados
  2. University of Otago, New Zealand​
  3. Eberhard Karls University Tübingen, Germany - term dates are October to February and April to July, and courses are in German.

Information about these exchanges can be found at the Queen's University International Programs site.  If you are interested in applying for one of these programs, you should let Nancy Somers know as soon as possible, as we are more likely to obtain a place from the university if we know that we have at least one student interested in the opportunity.  We will advise students by early December of each year whether Law has been allocated any of these exchange places, and the option(s) will be included on the online application form.

Ontario Universities International Programs

Several programs, referred to collectively as the Ontario Universities International (OUI) Programs, are administered at Queen's through the International Programs Office.  In some cases financial assistance may be available from the provincial government.  Such stipends are administered by the OUI office.

These programs include:

  1. The Ontario/Baden-Württemburg Student Exchange Program, for students fluent in German.
  2. The Ontario/Rhône-Alpes Student Exchange Program, for students fluent in French.

See http://www.queensu.ca/ipo/outgoing-students/exchange/apply for details and the application form.

If you are interested in applying for one of these programs, you should advise Nancy Somers by December 15 of the year prior to your exchange, and submit your application to Nancy one week prior to the January deadline for Law-specific exchanges.  Applications for these exchanges must be coordinated through the Law Faculty, ranked, and submitted to the International Programs Office.
