The iSEEQ Program

iSEEQ is a new program that we are launching in the summer of 2014. It builds on our 27 years of experience offering quality university enrichment programs. Three years ago we developed the Summer Enrichment Experience at Queen’s, or SEEQ. In 2013, we expanded the program from one week to offer it for two weeks. As a result, we attracted international students from Hong King, China, Nigeria, Mexico and the US who stayed for both weeks. The experience was positive, and we decided to take the opportunity to more fully develop an excellent academic university experience designed especially for international students, and thus, we are pleased to introduce iSEEQ.

iSEEQ runs for 13 days in August, and is it offers students a chance to explore two academic topics (one each week),

while experiencing university life at one of Canada’s most prestigious universities. iSEEQ offers weekly courses for highly motivated and bright students who have completed grades 7 through 10 (i.e. will be entering grades 8 to 11 in September). Students will choose courses of interest that will be explored in depth using state of the art facilities, labs and equipment on campus, and instructed by graduate and professional students, supported by university faculty members. Students live in a modern student residence building on campus, and eat meals in the dining halls together. As well as academic studies during the day, students participate in extracurricular activities in the evenings, and get to experience university life at Queen’s. Along with meeting international students from around the world, iSEEQ students will meet dozens of Canadian students who attend our one-week SEEQ program, further immersing them in the Canadian experience and building lasting friendships and future colleagues.
