  • 4. Queen’s casts a “potent and mysterious spell.” 2
  • 5. So said a Queen’s principal a long time ago. It’s the beauty of the place, its history, its reputation for excellence. More, it’s the people. The students, the professors, the artists and the visionaries – a community defined by its spirit of initiative.Working together, questioning, imagining, creating – making a difference. 3
  • 6. The Queens Student: You Queen’s attracts students who want to excel, and who want to do. Surrounded by bright, motivated peers, and aided and encouraged by Queen’s supportive atmosphere, you’ll spend four years being taught by some of the finest academic minds anywhere – acclaimed philosophers and social scientists, innovative engineers and first- rate scientists. Queen’s challenges students intellectually, and they rise to the challenge. But for Queen’s students, the university experience is more than what happens in the classroom. It’s working on reducing the university’s carbon footprint, or providing local school kids with the chance to attend a summer science camp. It’s immersing yourself in Queen’s famous school spirit, by taking part in a sport or cheering from the sidelines. ’ 
  • 7. 5 Queen’s students come from more than 90 countries and all across Canada, and from every imaginable background – small towns and suburbs, urban highrises and First Nations’communities. You’ll meet people like yourself – and others who are very different. Your fellow students will be among the most interesting, creative and provocative individuals you will ever encounter. They will challenge you. You won’t always agree with them, but you will get a big part of your university education from them, in conversations over meals or in late night discussions in residence rooms. 88.9% Incoming Average of the 1st year class: The Queen’s experience doesn’t end with graduation. The friendships you make will last the rest of your life. Wherever you go, whatever path you choose – business or government, law or medicine, the media or the arts – you will find and work with fellow Queen’s graduates. An international, cross-generational community of excel- lence, people committed to dreaming and doing, to living the Queen’s spirit.

  • 9. 7 Successful students are balanced students. They know there is more to the university experience than marks and assignments. That, no matter how dedicated they are, they balance work and play, study time and extracurricular activities. Queen’s will help you find your balance. Looking for a way to get involved with others? Want to make a difference, locally or globally? Need to recharge your spiritual batteries or just blow off some steam? There’s a group to join, someone to talk to, or a team to play with. We also support your health and wellness. We create a welcoming living and learning environment and help you boost your school performance. All part of making sure you succeed. And Queen’s wants you to succeed. studentLIFE
  • 10. 8 SUPPORTINGYOUR SUCCESS When you arrive at Queen’s, you are very excited, ready for the adventure, ready to learn and ready to work. The transition to university life is a big one – and part of it is adjusting to the challenges and workload that are part of being a Queen’s student. At Queen’s you are never alone.

Past programs include a drum-making workshop, moccasin-making workshop, guest speakers and storytellers, traditional teachings, Full Moon Ceremonies, and a medicine garden. • Visiting Elder supports students in their education journey. The Elder is an invaluable resource to students and staff by providing support, guidance and a leadership role. The Elder is available to meet with students on a one-on-one basis. • Student lounge provides a relaxing atmosphere where students can study, write essays, socialize and hold meetings. • Academic and career assistance is available for course and program selection, working with faculty to develop strong essay-writing skills, and assisting students in exploring career options, peer mentorship and academic zone. • Resources include an Indigenous-focused library, a list-serve providing details about Aboriginal events on campus and in the surrounding communities. We also have a fully-equipped kitchen, free laundry facilities and wireless internet for students. • Social events include a welcome back barbeque, Early Move-In Day, and regular Three Sisters Feasts for students and other members of the Queen’s and local Aboriginal community.

In recognition of the need to encourage participation by members of the Aboriginal community in post- secondary education, Aboriginal students are eligible to apply under the Aboriginal Admission Policy.

  • 36. 28 THINK GLOBALLY Many Queen’s students enhance their education with an international experience. You may choose to study for your entire first year, or an upper-year term, at the Bader International Study Centre, Queen's campus in the United Kingdom. Or perhaps your sights are set on an international exchange – you can take a language course before you go! Maybe you’ll choose to experience the world closer to home by getting involved in one of the many student-led organizations that are working to make life better for global citizens – socially, politically, environmentally, and economically. queensu.ca/international
  • 37. 2929 thinkGLOBALLY International Opportunities with Queen’s BADER INTERNATIONAL STUDY CENTRE (BISC) Providing a remarkable venue for study and a gateway to Europe and beyond, the Bader International Study Centre in East Sussex, UK or "the Castle," as it is known by Queen's students, is a unique learning environment. Students from around the world have the opportunity to pursue studies in a truly international setting while earning credits toward their academic degree programs. Students may opt to spend their entire first year at the BISC as part of the innovative First-Year Program, or they may decide to spend one or more terms in the BISC Upper-Year Program. If you don’t decide to say,“Yes”to Queen’s, you can still study at the Castle. Many students from universities other than Queen’s choose to study for a term, or participate in one of our Field Studies courses in the summer. EXCHANGE Perhaps you have decided you would like to study a new language. What better way to learn, than to immerse yourself in a new culture and a new language by going on exchange?

For information about direct entry programs in Fine Art and Music, see page 54-55. SUBJECTS OF STUDY HUMANITIES Students who choose subjects in the Humanities can expect to see the world differently by interpret- ing human history, culture and artistic expression. How should we understand the past? What is the place of religion in human society? How does litera- ture contribute to human culture? How can we build a fair society in which everyone can thrive? Studying Art History, Classical Studies, English Language and Literature, History, Indigenous Studies, Jewish Studies, Medieval Studies, Philosophy, Religious Studies and Spanish and Latin American Studies will help you use your imagination and creativity to reflect upon different scholars’and writ- ers’answers to the“big”questions. You will learn to think clearly and critically, extending your insights into philosophies of the individual and the workings of human societies from antiquity to the present. STUDY
  • 48. The study of languages unlocks new worlds of litera- ture and culture. Knowledge of a language other than English enables you to travel, live and work in another country. Explore the foundations of language in the Linguistics or French Linguistics program or pursue literary and cultural studies in French, Ger- man, Greek, Italian, Latin or Spanish. Language instruction courses are also offered in Arabic, Chinese, Hebrew, Inuktitut, Japanese and Mohawk. Students interested in historical languages can study Hebrew, and Latin. In our globalized world, every student can benefit from exposure to cultural diversity through language courses, and Queen’s offers a minor plan in World Language Studies, in which students study two or more languages as a complement to their primary degree program. SOCIAL SCIENCES If you are intrigued by the behaviour and interactions of human beings, both as individuals and in groups, consider the Social Sciences. Topics range from psychological drives and motivations to economic growth and development; from political practices and institutions to patterns of family interaction; from the effect of human interventions on the envi- ronment to the roles of women in different societies. Social Science plans are offered in Applied Econom- ics, Cognitive Studies, Economics, Environmental Studies, Geography, Global Development Studies, Health Studies, Political Studies, Psychology, Sociology, and Gender Studies. You will be encour- aged to approach human beings and human life with curiosity and an open mind, to investigate issues with careful research, and to draw conclusions based on empirical evidence.

At Queen’s, Stage and Screen, Computing and the Creative Arts, Fine Art (Visual Art), Music, Drama and Film and Media provide you with many opportunities to understand and interpret different forms of artistic expression, as well as to refine your techniques and skills in order to produce and show your own artistic works.

Here are two different financial plans, with a variety of funding sources you could use to pay for your education. Your own plan may not be identical to these, but they are good examples of how several funding options can fit together to help you finance your education. TWO STUDENTS TWO FINANCIAL PLANS These scenarios illustrate how two students have put together a financial package to finance the first year of their Queen’s education. Jessica Admitted to Bachelor of Science (Honours) Class of 2018 Family Income: $50,000 Family size: 4 First of 2 children attending university Total cost of first year: $22,800 James Admitted to Bachelor of Arts (Honours) Class of 2018 Family Income: $120,000 Family size: 4 First of 2 children attending university Total cost of first year: $22,800 At the heart of our need-based student assistance program is the underlying objective that equality of opportunity exists for all students regardless of their financial background. There is an expectation that students and their parents will assume the primary responsibility for education costs. *The government loans and grants depicted in the above scenarios are based on assistance available to a single Ontario student qualifying for OSAP. Financial asistance from other provinces/territories will vary. **OSAP grants may be comprised of both up-front Grants [i.e. Ontario Tuition Grant (OTG) or an Ontario Access Grant (OAG)] and the Ontario Student Opportunity Grant (OSOG).

  • 97. 89 MoneyTalk! Money talk can take on a language of its own. This glossary will help you decipher some of the student financial assistance terminology. Award • Is non-repayable – an amount of money you receive to assist you in financing your education that you do not have to pay back. • Is a general term used to describe a scholarship or bursary. In some cases, the term award is used when there is a blend of academic, financial need and/or other criteria associated with the terms of the award. • All Queen’s admission awards will be deposited in your student fee account by August 15. Bursary • Is non-repayable – an amount of money you receive to assist you in financing your education that you do not have to pay back. • Based on an assessment of your financial need (see page 84 for more information on Queen’s admission bursaries). Admission Scholarship • Is non-repayable – an amount of money you receive to recognize your academic achievement. • Based on academic excellence (your high school grades). Sometimes also referred to as a merit-based award. • In some cases, there may be other criteria such as involvement in school and community. Renewable awards • Is non-repayable. • Renewable scholarships and awards are available to students as they enter the University. These awards are available to the recipients in future years as long as the renewal criteria are satisfied during each year of study at Queen’s. Grant • Governments, companies and organizations offer grants to students who meet certain conditions, such as financial need, academic skill, or special ability. • Not a loan! An amount of money you do not have to pay back. Loan • Money you receive that must be paid back, usually over a period of time. • Loans under government student assistance programs are interest-free while you are a full-time student and are based on financial need.You will begin to repay loans when you cease to be a full-time student. Some provinces/territories within Canada may have programs which reduce the amount of repayable loans. • A student line of credit is a loan from a financial institution (ie. commercial bank).You pay only the interest while you are in school.You begin repayment of the principal after you have graduated. Unlike government student loans, a student line of credit is not based on financial need. To qualify, you usually require a co-signer (eg. parent or guardian).You can apply for a student line of credit at most major Canadian banks. RESP • A Registered Education Savings Plan (RESP) is a special savings plan that many families have used to save for their child’s post-secondary education. Work Study Program • Provides students with demonstrated financial need, priority for certain part-time jobs on campus and for jobs with not-for-profit organizations. FINANCE
