2014 has come and that means that the admission process to Queen’s University is in full swing. The BISC admission team has been very busy processing applications, answering questions, sending out resources and we would not have it any other way.
It is even more exciting now that we have resumed doing WEEKLY blog posts. That’s right, every Thursday we are going to provide you with a ton of information about the BISC (while having some fun of course). So we hope that you keep checking our blog every week and that our posts help you in your quest to find the right school / program for you!
We want to start off by saying that for those you who have already sent in applications, you will be hearing from us shortly if you have not already. For those students who have not applied yet and are still thinking about it, applications are still open as of today (January 9th, 2014). Be sure to apply soon though as time is running out.
Once you have applied or if you have already received your acceptance, start thinking about resources and finances. Right now, our application for an Admission Bursary is open on SOLUS (our student centre website you should have received an email from Queen’s about). The Admission Bursary is a non repayable grant based solely on financial need that is available for students applying to Queen’s University (that includes the BISC). We HIGHLY recommend applying for this bursary.
Be sure to check your application on SOLUS and complete the items on your to do list. If you need to remind yourself about any important dates regarding admission, you can find them here - http://www.queensu.ca/admission/apply/firstyear/keydates.html
Regardless of where you are in the admission process (whether you are thinking about applying, or if you have applied, or even if you have already been accepted), we want you to contact us and let us know about any concerns and questions that you may have. We love speaking to our prospective students and we know that the BISC is a very different first year experience. If you are also looking for the perfect time to come a visit us and see Queen’s in full swing, you are in luck because we have our March Break Open House coming up on March 15th 2014. We will be there all day answering questions, meeting students and we will also have an information session during the day as well.
You can contact me via email or give me a call during office hours (contact information is provided below). I am also available to Skype with you if you would rather chat face to face. Simply send me an email letting me know what dates and times work best for you and we can set up a Skype time.
