The Expanding Horizons website is intended to be a one-stop shop for graduate resources that can help you achieve your academic and professional goals while at Queen's.

What Do We Offer

While a major part of the site is devoted to the Expanding Horizons academic & professional development workshop series, other sections will continually be updated when suitable resources become available. These resources will be both in document form and in alerting you to opportunities to present, network, volunteer, work and training.

Our Goal

The School of Graduate Studies is committed to providing a suite of workshops and resources that support our graduate students’ academic, professional and personal success. Our goal is that our students will value the Expanding Horizons series as helpful and worthwhile and that the skills acquired will be transferred to whatever career path they chose.​

Accessibility at Queen's

Queen’s is committed to an inclusive campus community with accessible goods, services, and facilities that respect the dignity and independence of persons with disabilities. School of Graduate Studies forms, etc. are available in an accessible format or with appropriate communication, supports upon request.
