How to change the position of axes label such that the label of the vertical axes appears at the bottom and the label of the horizontal axis appear in the left?

ParametricPlot[{4 Cos[θ] - 2 Sin[θ]^2, 
  3 Sin[θ] + 2 Cos[θ]^2}, {θ, 2.1, 10}, 
 PlotStyle -> {{Thin, Dashed, Black}}, Frame -> True, 
 AxesLabel -> {"Q/k", "N/k"}]

As Anjan Kumar comments the direct solution is to use FrameLabel instead:

ParametricPlot[{4 Cos[θ] - 2 Sin[θ]^2, 3 Sin[θ] + 2 Cos[θ]^2}, {θ, 2.1, 10}, 
 PlotStyle -> {{Thin, Dashed, Black}}, Frame -> True, FrameLabel -> {"N/k", "Q/k"}]

Supposing that feature were absent you could use Labeled instead:

ParametricPlot[{4 Cos[θ] - 2 Sin[θ]^2, 3 Sin[θ] + 2 Cos[θ]^2}, {θ, 2.1, 10}, 
  PlotStyle -> {{Thin, Dashed, Black}}, Frame -> True];

Labeled[%, {"Q/k", "N/k"}, {Left, Bottom}]
