This newsletter is being written on the first snowy day on our campus. Although a university is far more than a campus, we think Queen’s looks so beautiful in the snow .Our students are busy, right now, finishing final projects and papers and getting ready to write exams. Everyone is ready for the winter break!
In the coming weeks, it’s a great idea to working on your Personal Statement of Experience . We have a practice version on our website and the link to the ‘real thing’ is on your SOLUS Student Center.
We asked our Admission Coordinators for their tips on completing your PSE. Here is what they said:
For earlier consideration, please ensure we have your PSE no later than February 15. The final date to submit is March 1.
As the winter break approaches, in Canada, we would like to take this opportunity to wish you a restful holiday and all the best in 2012! Queen’s University will be closed for the winter break from noon on December 23, 2011 and will reopen on January 3, 2012. We will not respond to voicemail messages or email and we will not make any changes to your To-Do list during that period. If you require information about Queen’s while we are closed, please visit our website .
Make sure you mark your calendar to attend a chat session with Commerce staff and students along with Admission Coordinators and our Student Awards experts. Get all the information you need!
We are proud to announce that Queen’s will be participating in the new Schulich Leader Scholarshipsprogram for students enrolling in the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) areas of study at participating Canadian universities in Fall 2012. Those chosen as Schulich Leaderswill ultimately help to ensure that Canada is at the forefront of excellence in science and research for generations to come. Recipients of this prestigious scholarship will receive $60,000 ($15,000/year for 4 years) to help finance their education.
Speak to your high school administration to learn how you can become the Schulich Leader Nominee for your school. The high school nomination deadline is January 13, 2012. Please visit the Schulich Leader Scholarships web site for more details about the high school nomination process, eligibility and application guidelines. The Schulich Leader Scholarships are available to Canadian Citizens and permanent residents of Canada.
If you are a Canadian Citizen or Permanent Resident of Canada, make sure to send in your application for an Admission Bursary before February 15. A bursary is based on an assessment of your financial need and is money you receive to help you finance your Queen’s education. A bursary is non-repayable. That means you don’t have to pay it back.
