The IPO offers an academic orientation session for all incoming Arts and Science exchange students. The session will provide information about the numerous academic programs in the Faculty of Arts and Science, course registration, the academic culture at Queen's, contacting your professors and the role of teaching assistants in courses.
IPO staff and an Arts and Science faculty member will be available to answer questions and students will be given the opportunity to express any concerns as well as meet other exchange students in the Faculty of Arts and Science.
The Queen's University International Centre (QUIC) also offers a welcome and orientation program for international and exchange students. Information about their orientation programs is available on the QUIC website.
The Arts and Science Undergraduate Society (ASUS) is the student government representing all Arts and Science students at Queen's. ASUS runs an exchange "buddy" program which pairs an incoming exchange student with an upper-year Arts and Science student as well as organizing social events to welcome the students and give them the opportunity to meet other Arts and Science students. Incoming exchange students will receive an invitation to join the ASUS Exchange Buddies program once they have confirmed their acceptance to attend Queen's.
