We believe that our students should have access to expert faculty who enjoy motivating and challenging undergraduates to reach their full potentials. Our small class sizes and friendly learning community give all students the chance to work closely with our instructors to be successful
The Library provides access to a full range of academic printed materials, including all course readings, plus a wide range of online sources through Queen's online library. The Library team are available to provide support and advice in finding and using information.
While the BISC program is designed to challenge students, we offer students plenty of support to be successful. One-to-one mentoring by faculty is reinforced with academic skills sessions, and bespoke support by our Student Success Coordinator.
The BISC has concise, accessible academic policies so that students and faculty are clear on our institutional expectations for academic activities. These policies are consistent with Queen’s University policies for main campus, with some appropriate adjustments for UK law and local conditions at the Castle.
Experiential Learning is a key pedagogy at the BISC. We are dedicated to offering our students direct experiences to develop their knowledge, critical thinking, intercultural skills, and confidence beyond traditional classroom contexts.
