Know your Services are Workshops give a detailed overview of the different actors and services around a particular subject matter. While designed with international graduate & professional students in mind, these workshops will be useful to any student wanting to learn more about the who, what, and where of their services at Queen’s and in Kingston. This is also a fantastic opportunity for faculty and staff interested in learning about the variety of services available to their students, particularly international students, so as to better support them during their studies. While each workshop is 3 hours long, attendees can come for the portions of the workshops they think will be most useful for them.
