About Queen’s University


About the University

Home to 24,000 students and with a history dating all the way back to 1841, it isn’t difficult to understand the unique appeal of Queen’s University. Since opening its door to ambitious students more than 170 years ago, Queen’s University has vowed to challenge and support in equal measures. Certainly not the kind of college where you can expect an easy ride, but then again…that’s not what true academic excellence is all about!

Located in Kingston, Ontario, Queen’s University is a mid-sized college with an extensive range of prestigious faculties, colleges, and professional schools. One of which being the Bader International Study Centre located in the United Kingdom, making for some pretty fantastic international study opportunities. As one of the oldest degree-granting institutions in the country, Queen’s University knows what it takes to transform ambition into the most remarkable success stories.

Courses and Programs

The full catalog of courses and programs available at Queen’s is just about as dynamic and comprehensive as that of any Canadian university…if not more so. Programs are divided across the Faculty of Arts and Science, Faculty of Education, Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science, Faculty of Health Sciences, Faculty of Law, Smith School of Business, School of Graduate Studies and School of Policy Studies – each of which has earned national and international acclaim.

Speaking of which, Queen’s University has one of the most remarkable international programs in the country right now, giving students the option to study at 245 different institutions spanning 45 countries. Though once again, the Bader International Study Centre located in the United Kingdom remains the prime pick for most students with their sights set on overseas travel!
