Queen's University

    Queen's University
    Established on: 1841

    In Kingston, Ontario, Canada, you'll find the public research institution known as Queen's University at Kingston. Queen's University, or just Queen's, is the name most often used to refer to this institution.

    The Queen's University estate in Ontario encompasses more than 1,400 hectares (3,500 acres), in addition to its ownership of Herstmonceux Castle in East Sussex, England. Queen's University is comprised of a total of eight different faculties and schools throughout its campus.

    In October 1841, Queen Victoria granted the Church of Scotland a royal license to build Queen's College. This charter allowed the Church of Scotland to do so. The college was given the name of the queen in her honor.

    On March 7, 1842, the very first classes were held with the purpose of training students for positions in the ministry. There were 13 pupils in attendance, along with two teachers. The Queen's Institution in Ontario was the first university in Canada to be located west of the Maritime areas when it granted admission to female students in the year 1869.

    The admission of women to the university's medical courses in 1883 prompted hostile responses from male faculty members and students, which led to the establishment of a women's college to obtain a medical degree associated with Queen's University. The college was named Queen's University College of Medicine.

    1912 was the year when Queen's terminated its links with the Presbyterian Church and started using its present name. Before that, the school was known as Presbyterian College. The university's site was enlarged in the middle of the 20th century by constructing several new buildings and establishing a few more colleges and schools.

    More than 23,000 people are now enrolled in Queen's Institution, a university that admits students of both sexes and has no age restrictions. It has graduated more than 131,000 students to date.

    One of the most notable benefits offered by the university is individualized attention given to each student. It welcomes these students into an intellectually engaging environment where they can prepare for the jobs of their dreams. As a result, it attracts exceptional students from all over the world.

    The institution's graduates have gone on to have significant positions in government, academia, and business, and the university has produced 57 Rhodes Scholars as part of its alumni population.

    As of 2022, the university has been connected to the work of five people who have been awarded the Nobel Prize and one who has been given the Turing Award.
