Application Procedures

The programs now have a short waiting list, but we hope to be able to to make a few additional offers in the coming weeks.  If you are interested in applying please email gillian.ready@queensu.ca to register your interest, as subsequent offers will be made in the order that applications are received. 

All students in receipt of a government student loan can apply for a needs-based bursary. See the Program Fees page for more details. Queen's Law students can also apply for a Global Law Scholarship or a Global Skills Opportunity Award. Provided students apply for financial aid at the time of application to the program, they should receive the response to their bursary and/or award application before their response is due to the offer of a place.
