An intimate learning experience
The Bader International Study Centre at Herstmonceux Castle in the UK is an educational experience quite unlike any other! You will participate in internationally-focused, Queen’s courses and experience small seminar sizes that allow for development of your academic skills, such as critical thinking, analysis, and effective writing, through the media of dialogue and debate. You will experience a level of interaction with and support from your professors that is much more in keeping with a graduate-level of education.
Experiential and active learning
You will learn in a variety of settings, not just in the classroom, but way beyond. All courses include classroom based activities such as lectures and seminars, and all involve experiential learning opportunities that will take you to exceptional places in the UK and Europe.
So close to Europe
As part of your program you will experience different cultures and subcultures, and so develop an understanding of what it means to be part of a globalized world. You will also have opportunities to travel independently, with London being within two hours of the campus, and continental Europe being just half a day's travel away.
Active engagement with the community
As part of a small community, you will be able to participate in a wide range of activities, social, sporting and performative. These will enable you to develop both your self-confidence and the life skills which will support you throughout university and into the workplace.
