We are the school with a small-town feel, but with a large-city appeal. Queen's ArtSci is rich in history, clad with awards and medals for academic excellence, a network that is unlike any other - just ask any grad, and to top it off we have students like you that make Queen's University one unique place to study.
To get more specific, when you study at Queen's you get to be undeclared. It's hard to know what you want to study right out of highschool where your options were limited. Our first year allows you to try a little bit of everything. So if you like playing the trumpet and you like learning about animal species then you can take courses in both music and biology before deciding the direction you want to specialize. In fact, you can even use this undeclared path to get to law school or med school - you just have to keep those grades up in whatever courses you choose.
Queen’s is home to students from more than 120 different countries; international students make up approximately seven percent of the full-time student population. More than 90% of students come from outside 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. Support of diversity and inclusivity in all its forms, is an integral part of the Queen’s ethos, and is an important aspect of the rich learning and work environment.
