Students taking LLCU courses have numerous ways to expand their knowledge and get involved in many cultural activities in the Department and at Queen’s. You can come to the LLCU international Film Night, attend guest lectures, get engaged with one of the AMS student clubs, participate in the events organized by Four Directions Indigenous Student Centre or volunteer at Queen’s International Centre. You can also explore Kingston’s ethnic communities to find ways to get involved.
Queen's University International Centre
The Queen’s University International Centre (QUIC) is an international education support service for students, faculty and staff at Queen’s. Through its activities the Centre promotes an internationally informed and cross culturally sensitive university community.
QUIC programs and services support
- the academic and personal development of international students, other international members of the Queen’s community, and their families;
- the academic and personal development of Queen’s students, staff and faculty interested in Education Abroad; and
- the internationalization of the campus by working with university departments, offices, groups and individuals to enhance and diversify the international learning environment at Queen’s through educational and training activities.
QUIC offers many cultural events and get-togethers for students, as well as the opportunity to volunteer to support international students with improving their English as they integrate into Queen’s life. It is a fruitful way to meet other students from other countries, to help and to learn from one another.
Check QUIC's Calendar of Events for the most up-to-date information.
Four Directions Indigenous Student Centre
Four Directions Indigenous Student Centre, or 4D as it is affectionately called, strives to be a home away from home, a hub of activity and a key resource for Queen's Indigenous students. The Centre offers academic tutoring and advising, cultural programming, an Indigenous-focused library, and a range of workshops designed to support you academically, socially and culturally.
