QBridge is a university preparation program for students who have received a conditional offer of acceptance to an undergraduate program at Queen's University.
QBridge is designed to provide you with academic English language training prior to studies at Queen's. From the end of June until August, you will participate in an intensive English language program at Queen's School of English (QSoE), completing the program in time to enroll in full-time degree studies in September.
This program helps to build the skills necessary for academic success and helps you gain an understanding of the expectations for study at Queen's University. This student-centered immersion program integrates the four language skills: reading, writing, listening and speaking, at an academic level. It is more academically challenging and rigorous than standard lecture and test format courses and more in keeping with the communicative classroom style. Students are expected to orally communicate, defend, analyze and critique the ideas of others as they fine tune their academic English skills.
Successful students will demonstrate a high level of academic thinking and research while engaging in English study, attending and listening to lectures, writing essays and participating in presentations, seminars and debates.
