Transition to Second Year

Coming “home” after an international study/work program can be exciting, and also a little bewildering. At the BISC we run several workshops before you leave that look at different aspects of transitioning to second year including:

  • Academics
  • Academic advising, plan selection, and course registration
  • Exploring Queen's and Kingston
  • Housing
  • Reverse Culture Shock

It's important to know that there are people in Kingston who can relate to this adjustment and who are interested in hearing about your study/work abroad experience. Queen's University International Centre (QUIC) and the Student Experience Office will be a main resource or your re-entry to main campus. BISC-specific programs inlude:

  • The BISC Mentor Program
  • Welcome to Queen's Day
  • NEWTS Orientation
