10 Point Success Model

The Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science at Queen’s University has always had a very strong record of supporting our students. In the last few years, we have quantified this into our 10-point Student Success Model. This model brings together the key elements that students need to be successful over their years at Queen’s.

1. Advisors

Whether you are a prospective, upper-year, or international student, we have over 30 specialized and dedicated advisors to help you navigate your time at Queen’s.

2. Free Choice of Discipline

Relieves the stress of competing with peers for a spot in your first-choice program.

3. Program Advisor (Accommodations & Considerations)

The Program Advisor (Accommodations & Considerations) supports students with individual academic accommodations.

4. Wellness Skills Workshops

Sessions that facilitate wellness and stress management for students.

5. Early Intervention

First-year students who are identified as having academic difficulties are offered support and resources early on.

6. Study Skills Workshops

Workshops that enhance the skills of students to help you achieve your academic potential.

7. Douglas Help Desk

Extra after-hours help sessions for first-year students led by upper-year students.

8. Personal Counsellors

Counsellors can meet with students to discuss the stresses they may be facing and suggest coping mechanisms to ensure they stay on track.

9. Peer Mentors

A program where upper-year student facilitators individually help students develop learning strategies to ensure your academic success.

10. Extended Program

A safety net that allows students to retake failed fall semester courses early in winter term. This allows them to get back on track before entering second year.

With these 10 points, the Queen's Community is unlike any other. Not only do we focus on giving students a strong academic and professional background, but this model provides students with the support system they need to succeed.
