European Students

EU nationals may apply to attend Queen's for one or two semesters under the Erasmus programme. Queen's admits Erasmus students from universities with which it has a bilateral exchange agreement.  See the Erasmus programme section of this website for further information.

If your home institution does not have an Erasmus agreement with Queen's and you wish to attend for one or two semesters, you may apply to attend as a Credit-Earning Non-Graduating (CENG) student. For further guidance on submitting an application as a CENG student, please contact the Admissions Office.
