With more than 23,000 students and 3,700 staff, it is a dynamic and diverse institution, a magnet for inward investment, a major employer and investor, a patron of the arts and a global player in areas ranging from cancer studies to sustainability, and from pharmaceuticals to creative writing.

Graduate exchanges

Fredrik S. Eaton, Chancellor of the University of New Brunswick from 1993 to 2003, and his wife Catherine established the Queen’s University Belfast (QUB) - University of New Brunswick (UNB) Exchange Program in 2000 and contributed $1 million over a five - year period to endow the program. Thanks to their generosity, approximately $40,000 is available annually to support graduate students and faculty to study and conduct research in collaboration with Queen’s University Belfast through Fellowships and Visitorships.

One graduate student per year from UNB and one graduate student per year from QUB have the opportunity to spend a minimum of 4 weeks or a maximum of 6 months at the other institution.

Interested students apply for the programme through UNB Research Services.
