Queen's Enrichment Studies Unit


The Enrichment Studies Unit (ESU) at Queen's University, an initiative of the Faculty of Arts and Science, offering enrichment courses during Reading Week and in the months of May and June for elementary, intermediate and secondary school students. These programs give gifted and highly motivated young people the opportunity to study a subject at an advanced level for up to one week on Queen's campus, and get a glimpse into the life of a post-secondary student.

Each year, the Enrichment Studies Unit hires around 40-50 instructors to prepare and teach our courses, usually through a Call for Proposals process which starts in October. We are particularly interested in graduate and professional students with teaching experience who can develop and lead a high quality program that would appeal to gifted and bright students in grades 6 to 12.
