For more than 175 years, Queen’s University has made its mark in Canadian higher education with a commitment to both research excellence and an unparalleled student experience. Home to more than 25,000 students, researchers, scholars, professors, and artists, Queen’s offers an impressive range of undergraduate and graduate programs in faculties of Arts and Science, Engineering and Applied Science, Business, Health Sciences, Education, Law, and Graduate Studies.

The university ranks fourth among medical-doctoral universities in Canada and its 20 university- and faculty-based research centres provide dynamic and collaborative settings for scholars across many fields. Queen’s graduate students are an integral part of the vibrant research community, and master’s and PhD programs prepare students for exciting careers in various sectors.

Queen’s diversified programming attracts outstanding students from across Canada and from around the world, with international students currently comprising close to 10 per cent of the undergraduate and about 23 per cent of the graduate student population. International students who require additional English language training prior to applying for degree programs can enroll in the Queen’s School of English for Academic Purposes program.

Thanks to important provincial and federal investment, a state-of-the-art Innovation and Wellness Centre, opening in spring 2018, will bring together services, entrepreneurship and translational research.

Queen’s is located in the beautiful city of Kingston, Ontario, halfway between two of Canada’s largest cities, Montreal and Toronto.
