Prospective Graduate Students, Supervision & Visiting Scholars

Collaborative scholarship in assessment, evaluation, and knowledge mobilization

The AEG welcomes new graduate students and visiting scholars each year to study and collaborate with us. The AEG aims to augment students’ graduate studies experiences in Education through focussed supports and research as well as internship opportunities in areas of assessment, evaluation, measurement, language testing, and knowledge mobilization.


The AEG is part of Queen’s Faculty of Education and located in historic Kingston, Canada. Founded in 1841, Queen’s University was the earliest degree-granting institution in Canada and now has more than 4,200 graduate students and over 22,000 full-time students. Since 2003, Queen’s has consistently been within Canada’s top two institutions for the number of faculty research awards and prizes each year, demonstrating Queen’s intensive research environment and the opportunities for graduate student learning. In the Faculty of Education, we use a collaborative research mentorship model in which graduate students work closely with faculty members on research that matters to students, teachers, and schools.

Prospective Masters Students

The AEG faculty members regularly teach in the Queen’s Faculty of Education Master of Education Program. If you are looking to study at the Masters level, you do not need to identify a supervisor prior to applying via the Queen’s University admission process. You can find information about applying to the MEd program at Queen’s Faculty of Education including admission requirements and procedures at:

Prospective Doctoral Students

The AEG faculty members regularly supervise PhD students in the Queen’s Faculty of Education Doctorate of Philosophy Program (PhD). While doctoral program admission is highly competitive, if you are interested in pursuing at PhD with one of the AEG faculty members we will work closely with you to prepare a competitive application for the university-based admissions process. Information about admission requirements and the admission process is available at: In advance of supporting any prospective student for the university-based admission process, the AEG faculty members will review your CV and a brief research statement. For those students with strong alignment with our area of expertise, we will also connect via tele/video-call to ensure your interests align with one of our faculty members’ research profiles. In our experience, we have found these steps help in ensuring greater success in our programs, if admitted. If you are interested in working with one of our faculty members, please reach out directly to them with your CV and a 1-page statement describing your intended areas of research.


Please note that these steps are not formally part of the admissions process; rather, they are intended to determine alignment between your interests and your potential supervisor’s interests, with the aim of better supporting you during the admissions process. The AEG faculty members will review all documents and expressions of interest for supervision and will reach out to you to set-up a tele/video call, if we determine that there is potential alignment between your profile and our capacity to supervise your interests. We aim to conduct our tele-video calls in October/November each year. If an AEG faculty member agrees to endorse your application for graduate studies, they will work directly with you to further develop your application for submission to the university admission process, which closes mid-January yearly. Due to our mentorship approach to supervision, AEG faculty members are unfortunately unable to endorse all students who express interest in completing graduate studies with us. Our aim is to work with those whom we feel we can best support through our program.

Visiting Scholars

AEG faculty members welcome the opportunity to host visiting scholars who share common research interests. Visiting scholars must be self-funded and first establish a productive research relationship with one of our AEG members. To express interest in being a visiting scholar with one of the AEG faculty members, please contact the faculty member directly.
