Queen's University

13 December 2017, 13:45 CET

Some colleges across Canada have impressive legacies spanning many decades…and then there’s Queen's University.

With a history dating back more than 170 years, Queen's University was around for more than a century before most Canadian colleges even got off the ground. Less a university and more a community with a collective focus on academic excellence, Queen's really does have it all.

From its breathtaking location to the highest-quality education to the kind of all-round student experience that's simply beyond compare, both faculty and students alike are treated to something seriously special. Queen's University is all about dreaming big for the future, then doing whatever it takes to make it happen.

Courses and Programs

Celebrated scientists, accomplished engineers, acclaimed philosophers - Queen's University is home to some of the most outstanding tutors, instructors and academics in Canada. The list of courses available is no less than mind-blowing, with courses ranging from music to astrophysics to commerce to Engineering. There's even the option of spending a year studying at the college's campus in England.

Schools provided by Queen's University include 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. What's more, Queen's University was one of the first learning centers of its kind to begin offering a variety of distance learning and online study opportunities. Meaning that if you don't have the time to commit to a full-time on-campus course, you can still enjoy the full Queen's educational experience from elsewhere.
