Academics

Queen’s residents have opportunities to engage with up to a dozen visiting international scholars in residence in any one year. In 2017, our Visiting Scholars included a Miegunyah Fellow from the University of Haifa, scholars in law from Cornell and Edinburgh Universities, scholars in management and leadership from UCLA and The Brookings Institute, as well as  from institutions in New Zealand and Sweden. In 2018 our Scholars have come from the UK, China, South Africa, and the USA.

Students are encouraged to converse with Visiting Scholars over dinner at formal Hall on Mondays, or at our Tuesday night ‘Dine with a Scholar’ events. The College also appoints an annual Sugden Fellow to reside at the college for 1-3 months, usually in conjunction with a University visiting appointment.
