Exchanges play a huge part in developing the skills of our group. All PhD students are encouraged to go on an international exchange during their academic career, if this is something they are interested in doing. MSc and BSc students are also given this opportunity.
Traditionally, we have encouraged students to take 3-4 months on exchange. This allows students enough time away for a good experience out of the trip without interfering with progress of your thesis back home.
Due to Dr. Crudden’s satellite lab at the Institute of Transformative Bio-Molecules in Nagoya, Japan, this is an attractive choice for many students, but of course there are numerous opportunities available.
There are also opportunities for students from collaborator’s labs to do an exchange to the Crudden lab during their studies. Please email us for more information if you are interested in studying at Queen’s!
