Queen's University

Volunteer Opportunities

Just because you're back at Queen's doesn't mean your exchange experience has come to an end!

There is a wide range of opportunity to further your international experience while at Queen’s. You may choose to be a peer advisor for students interested in applying for exchange or an international buddy to new students arriving from all over the world. An abundance of opportunities are offered by the Arts & Science Undergraduate Society (ASUS), the Queen’s University International Centre (QUIC) and the IPO.

IPO Opportunities

The IPO typically advertises for two paid work-study students to work for the full academic year, with preference going to students who have been on exchange. Returning students will be emailed before or at the start of the Fall semester. Full details of the work-study scheme are available through Student Awards

We also run Exchange Connect! which is an opportunity for prospective exchange students to meet with both students who have been overseas on exchange and students who are currently at Queen's on exchange. Returning exchange students will be emailed with details of this volunteer opportunity.

ASUS Opportunities

Founded in 2008, the ASUS (Arts  and Science Undergraduate Society) Exchange Buddies Program offers Queen’s students the chance to pair up with students arriving to Queen’s from all over the world. More information about this program can be found by emailing
