The first of two Fall Preview Open Houses, held on Saturday, Nov. 3, attracted close to 4,400 prospective undergraduate students to Queen’s.

With the application process for the 2019-2020 academic year now open, this day-long event allows prospective students to discover all that Queen’s has to offer. Attendees are able to tour campus facilities, visit residences, and speak with students, faculty members, and staff about their programs of interest.

“Queen’s Fall Preview allows prospective students to come to campus to see first-hand the strength of our programs and the quality of the student experience,” says Stuart Pinchin, Executive Director, Undergraduate Admission and Recruitment. “I’d like to thank all faculty members, students and staff who participates in this important event that helps students decide whether Queen’s is a good fit for them.”

Thousands more potential undergraduate students and family members will be welcomed to campus on Saturday, Nov. 17 for the second Fall Preview Open House. For the 2018-19 academic year, Queen’s received more than 42,000 applicants for 4,422 spaces.

An exciting addition to the recruitment season this year is the launch of the on-campus Bachelor of Health Sciences, a direct-entry undergraduate degree program. This program has been available online since 2016, however in Fall 2019 students will also have the opportunity to pursue this degree pathway in a classroom setting. The program will follow a flipped classroom model that uses the individual study of online modules to enhance the engagement of classroom sessions. This will provide students with a unique learning experience that combines course material with real-world application.
