Queen's University recently signed an agreement with the Saudi Arabian Cultural Bureau (Bureau) in Canada in relation to the King Abdullah scholarship program. These scholarships will be awarded to students across all graduate programs.
In order to apply for a King Abdullah scholarship, a student must contact the Bureau. This is the agency representing the King Abdullah Scholarship Program and provides scholarships to Saudi Arabian students for studies abroad.
Once a scholarship has been confirmed, then the student may apply for admission into Queen's. All regulations & requirements of Queen's admissions must be followed.
Queen's University is honoured to receive applications from excellent Saudi students. Queen's is a research-intensive university with world-class facilities and researchers. The University is located in Kingston, Ontario, Canada which is the freshwater sailing capital of Canada.
If the language of instruction your current degree program is not in English, please take the TOEFL or IELTS test, and ensure your test results are sent to Queen's University.
For students who have not yet achieved the required level of English proficiency for admission to the School of Graduate Studies, you must sign up for the ESL training at the Queen's School of English.
Collect the required transcripts and reference letters as indicated on the online application. Send these directly to Queen's School of Graduate Studies.
Note: The Bureau will pay the costs for Saudi students admitted to graduate programs at Queen's University, including full international tuition and student fees, accommodation and living expenses, transportation, medical and dental expenses not covered by insurance, UHIP premiums and entry fees.
Master's students will be funded for up to two years and doctoral students will be funded for up to four years.
Students supported by the Bureau are not eligible for Queen's internal awards. Teaching assistantships can be awarded at the discretion of the Department.
