Queen’s Internship Program (QUIP)

QUIP is a 12-16 month accredited, paid work experience designed to give you real-world experience as part of your academic journey. Students can participate in QUIP after their second or third year of studies and must be returning to complete their final academic requirements after the internship.

Students must have a minimum GPA of 1.9 and permission from their Undergraduate Chair to register in QUIP.

Registering for QUIP is easy:

“For any students considering an internship with QUIP, I would highly recommend it. I've had a great experience working here, and I couldn't recommend it enough. I think the experience is invaluable, graduating with 12-16 months of actual professional experience, and I couldn't imagine graduating without it now.” Rylan Richter
