International Study Centre

International Study Centre

Queen's University's Bader International Study Centre at Herstmonceux Castle in Sussex, England, offers courses including Film and Media to students from Queen's and around the world. It's a unique venue for study abroad, providing a beautiful setting, small classes, and exposure to the cultural and historical resources of England and the Continent.

In some terms, the Department of Film and Media offers courses specifically designed for the ISC, so you can follow your FILM program while spending a term at the Castle. Some of these courses are given only at Herstmonceux, and will open a window onto film and media culture in Europe, and complement your courses at the Kingston campus.

FILM 104* and FILM 106* are an alternative to FILM 110 in first year.

FILM 306*/0.5 Contemporary Film: Britain and the Continent 3L; 2P Comparative study of thematic and stylistic trends in recent films from Britain and one other European Union country.

Courses are offered if numbers warrant.

The International Study Centre offers the opportunity to participate in academic programs in Europe while receiving credits toward a degree. The program is designed for one or two terms of study so that students may integrate the courses with their regular degree programs. The program is open to any student who has completed at least one year at the university level. The breadth of the curriculum will allow students, depending on their degree focus, to choose areas of specialization or diversification.

The cost of field trips associated with academic courses is already included in tuition fees. Other trips will be arranged for weekends and at other times for an additional cost. As well, many cultural and historic attractions are located within a few miles of the Castle.

For more information see the Bader International Study Centre website.
