Queen's in the World

Queen’s University has launched a new Chinese language webpage in order to better connect with prospective students and their families.  The webpage provides information about studying at Queen’s, the admission process, the university’s China Liaison Office, and about the City of Kingston.

“Queen’s is working to attract more international students as part of its commitment to enhancing its international prominence and providing a globally relevant learning experience,” says Daniel Woolf, Principal and Vice-Chancellor. “China is a longstanding and highly-valued international partner for Queen’s and is the university’s largest source of international students. This new webpage provides another way for prospective students and others in China to connect with the university.”

Queen's new Chinese language webpage will help connect with prospective students and their families.

The webpage is the result of a pilot project aimed at making information about Queen’s accessible to prospective international students and their families in their native language. It is one part of Queen’s increasing international recruitment activities.

“As we expand our recruitment activities internationally, it will become increasingly important to have information about Queen’s available in languages other than English, especially for the families of prospective students,” says Kathy O’Brien, Associate Vice-Principal (International). “Chinese was a natural choice for this pilot project, given Queen’s high level of activity in China. Many people deserve thanks for bringing this webpage to fruition, especially Sunny Wang and Zhiyao Zhang in the Queen’s China Liaison Office.”

Expanding the university’s international reach is a strategic priority for Queen’s and a key driver in its strategic framework. Queen’s renewed international recruitment efforts are already showing results, with international students making up five per cent of this year’s incoming class.
