Bader International Study Centre
This is the educational experience you’ve been waiting for…
Surround yourself with towers, turrets and Queen’s tradition of academic excellence. The Bader International Study Centre, located at Herstmonceux Castle in East Sussex, England, offers a dynamic educational experience, combining a historic campus centered around a 15th-century castle with small class sizes and Queen’s world-class faculty and programs.
You’ll interact with your professors in class and out, foster strong ties with your peers and experience a deep sense of community forged by sharing this very special journey with a very special – and small – group of likeminded students.
Your Queen’s studies will be imbued and enriched by this magical place; its history and presence are inescapable.
