A new adventure in Belfast
A beautiful and friendly city in equal measures, Belfast was recently found to have the happiest students in the UK.
You’ll find us in the heart of the city’s cultural, artistic and social scenes, offering a unique blend of Irish and British cultures.
Less than an hours flying separates Belfast from most other major UK cities.
And with two airports offering regular flights to London, Manchester, Liverpool, Glasgow, Cardiff and many more, you're never too far from home.
"Elms is great fun to live in for the first year. It’s where you’ll meet some great friends and the prices are really good compared to accommodation at other unis. You’ll be guaranteed a place here if you’re a GB student too!"Calista Arthey

Student Plus Scholarship
"The Student Plus Award was a major pull factor for me; it offered benefits like reduced accommodation, free gym membership, cinema pass, and reduced tuition fees. I also got money to ship my stuff to Belfast which really helped with the moving in process too."

"When choosing Queen’s, friends and family were shocked that I was moving so far away. However, when thinking about it, I would much rather be on a plane for a mere fifty minutes rather than a four hour train journey to the north of England."Meg Walton
