Queen’s University

Queen’s is an integral part of the Kingston community, with the campus nestled in the core of the city, only a 10-minute walk to downtown. Kingston becomes a part of the Queen’s experience whether you are faculty, student, or staff. From tutoring an elementary or high school student down the street, volunteering or working for one of the many shops and businesses downtown, or becoming friends with a neighbour (who also could be a professor or staff member!), being a part of the Queen’s community and the Kingston community are intimately intertwined. By fourth year of undergraduate study: 60% of students have participated in community service or volunteer activity, 50% have tutored other students on campus and in the Kingston community, 38% have completed a practicum, internship, field experience, co-op, or clinical assignment in and around the city, 33% have participated in community-based projects, Queen’s and its community of faculty, staff, and students contribute to the economic vibrancy of the city. Queen's University was established on October 16, 1841 in a Royal Charter issued by Queen Victoria. The document was granted after years of effort by the Presbyterians of Upper Canada to found a college for the education of ministers in the growing colony, and to instruct youth in the "various branches in Science and Literature."

Queen's students don't limit their learning to the classroom. They join clubs, run for student government, try out for sports teams, and test their skills in academic competitions. At Queen's, learning is about exploring all your capabilities — academic and otherwise — while learning the values of teamwork, and extending this knowledge to topics and causes that interest you beyond your major. ### A well-rounded education produces well-rounded individuals, equipped to take on the world and succeed in life after graduation. ### Education takes on a new dimension through integrated experiential learning. Through Queen’s-Blyth Worldwide, you will learn from exceptional instructors who are passionate about what they do, and enhance your understanding of the world. Subjects of study include those in the arts, humanities, sciences, and social sciences, with the historical and cultural aspects of each destination interspersed throughout the curricula. ### More than 1,300 international students, forming approximately seven percent of the full-time student population, study at Queen's each year. These students enrol in degree programs at the undergraduate and graduate levels, exchange programs within degree programs, or English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL) programs.
