Queen's School of English and Queen's University have decided that with uncertainty around global travel and the cancellation of in-person classes for fall and winter 2020 at Queen's University, we are moving our full-term on-site programs to a live virtual online format. This policy applies to our Academic English Foundations, English for Academic Purposes and short-term winter programs. QBridge Students who complete the online English for Academic Purpose program and meet the minimum grade requirements will still be eligible to move into their undergraduate degree programs as per usual.

For updates on the situation regarding COVID-19 and the Queen's University response, please check the Queen's University website here.

We have made this decision in order to ensure we are continuing to offer the most comprehensive English language programs to prepare students for the beginning of their academic study or to further their opportunities within their own country. We are fortunate that our English language school is already a part of the Faculty of Education at Queen's, which has been a leader in online teacher education programs and have provided resources and infrastructure that will allow for students to meet their learning goals. These programs will begin on their dates as planned, at the same time as the on-site programs would have met. We will be updating the Faculty of Education website with more information, so please direct students visit educ.queensu.ca for further updates.

We thank you for your patience and understanding.
