QUEEN’S UNIVERSITY

KINGSTON, ONTARIO, CANADA

Queen’s University is one of Canada’s oldest degree-granting institutions and a place where world-class scholars, artists and scientists interact with some of the brightest students from across Canada and around the world.

Located in Kingston, Ontario, Canada, Queen’s is a mid-sized university that offers exceptional programs across six academic faculties and schools: Arts and Science, Engineering and Applied Science, Business, Health Sciences (Medicine, Nursing and Rehabilitation Therapy), Education and Law. Queen’s also offers unique international education opportunities at its Bader International Study Centre, located in Herstmonceux, East Sussex, United Kingdom.

Established in 1841, Queen’s is home to iconic limestone buildings as well as modern facilities like the new Queen’s Centre, a student life and athletic centre, as well as the new world class Isabel Bader Centre for the Performing Arts.  The campus has a fully integrated network of six libraries and features several outstanding museums and art galleries, including the Agnes Etherington Art Centre, which is renowned for its collections, including three paintings by Rembrandt.

The Queen’s campus in Kingston is home to students from 100 different countries; international students make up approximately seven percent of the full-time student population. As a residential university, more than 90 percent of students come from outside of Kingston – from Canada and around the world – and live in residence.  Upper year, professional and graduate students live in a vibrant community surrounding the campus, most within a 15-minute walk.  Diversity in all its forms, from divergent opinions, to diverse citizenry, to cultural awareness, is a cornerstone of the Queen's experience.

Queen’s has a robust program of international exchange, involving bi-lateral agreements with about 150 universities in more than 45 countries. The university also has access to a further 30 universities through consortial exchanges. Some of these exchanges are faculty-specific, while others include multiple faculties under one agreement.

Queen’s is situated on the shores of Lake Ontario and near the entrance to the St. Lawrence Seaway, Thousand Islands and Rideau Canal. Located close to the downtown core of Kingston, Queen’s is within a few hours’ driving distance of Toronto, Montreal, Ottawa and Syracuse, New York, USA. Vibrant downtown Kingston is only a short walk and boasts many shops, excellent restaurants, and even a winter season outdoor ice-skating rink that transforms into an outdoor cinema during the summer. Kingston ranked fourth in the Canadian Business 2011 survey of Canada’s Best Places to Live.

Queen’s has a rich legacy of academic excellence and a distinctive learning environment that is built on the philosophy that not all lessons are learned in the classroom. An unrivaled spirit, strong sense of community and social purpose are hallmarks of the Queen’s experience.

In addition to its transformative student learning experience, Queen’s is one of Canada’s leading research-intensive universities that conducts leading-edge research in areas of critical concern to Canada and the world, including global and community health, sustainable energy, environment and the economy, social issues such as surveillance, poverty and bullying, and art conservation.  Many of its faculty members have been recognized with national and international awards, including Dr. Arthur McDonald, the co-recipient of the 2015 Nobel Prize in Physics.

Attracting some of the best students from around the world, Queen’s balances excellence in undergraduate studies with well-established and innovative graduate studies programs, all within a dynamic learning environment. Queen’s faculty members are educators, mentors and international experts in their disciplines.

The university’s tradition of innovation, quality and leadership in the academic world is marked by a number of pioneering initiatives. The university initiated graduate work and correspondence study in Canada, and was the first to offer academic programs in business and commerce, engineering, physics, art conservation, policy studies and industrial relations.

A member of the prestigious U15 group of research-intensive Canadian universities, the international Matariki Network of Universities, and the CALDO consortium, Queen’s has a worldwide reputation for outstanding academics. This depth of quality, combined with student exchange opportunities and many international work and study opportunities, ensures that Queen's students contribute not just at home, but around the globe.
