Peer Academic Support Service is a volunteer service that is run through the Faculty of Arts and Science to assist first-year students. The goal is to ease student transition into university and to promote academic success. Peer Advisors deal with frequently asked questions and concerns (scheduling, plan requirements, SOLUS, and selecting courses) during confidential, non-judgmental advising sessions.
Bounce back is a support program for first year students who may be struggling academically. Students who opt-in to the program are matched with an upper-year student mentor who works with them one-on-one to identify the source(s) of their difficulties, to share learning strategies and connect them with the appropriate on-campus resources.

The QLC provides resources, workshops and seminars, and one-on-one professional consultations for students who want to enhance or develop skills.
queen's exam bank
The Exam Bank was established in the summer of 1999 when the Head Manager of the P&CC and the Academic Affairs Commissioner lobbied the University for an online exam bank service, so students would have access to past exams. Today, exams for almost all courses are posted in PDF format for all your academic needs.
The Student Research Hub contains a comprehensive list of ways to get involved in undergraduate research at Queen’s. You can find out how to write a thesis, publish an article in a student-run journal, participate in a summer research fellowship, and more.
