    Welcome to the BISC!

    The Bader International Study Centre is the UK campus of Queen's University, Canada - based at historic Herstmonceux Castle in East Sussex.

  • ELOs

    Leave the classroom behind!

    Our exciting Experiential Learning Opportunities (ELOs) are a feature of every program that we offer. Learn by going! Visit museums, galleries, or take a guided tour through the streets of London.

    The BISC firmly believes in learning that goes beyond the classroom.

  • Programs

    Choose the program that suits you

    First Years can spend a full year at the castle in our Arts, Science, or Con-Ed streams. Upper Years can take advantage of our course clusters in the Fall, Summer, or Winter terms.

    All students benefit from our small class sizes and personal contact with our professors.

  • Campus

    A vibrant, friendly campus

    All students live on the castle estate itself in our Hall of Residence, Bader Hall. The BISC is a small community that prides itself on its sense of inclusiveness and diversity. And with over 30 ratified student clubs, there's no excuse not to get involved!
