Preparing for Success
Equipping students for success in the global workplace is about much more than academic achievement.
Here at Queen’s we ensure our students enjoy rounded university experience with just as strong a focus on interaction with academics and building personal relationships with their fellow students.
Developing your skills
It’s the best way to grow and develop the people skills that are essential to shaping the future’s world and business leaders.
Queen’s graduates are already making their mark around the world, in every field, from Accounting to Zoology.

We are dedicated to helping each of our graduates think of life after Queen's, and gain practical experience during their time with us.
This is why many of our degree programmes feature a year in industry ether locally or abroad. Our students benefit from the links we have built up with some of the country's biggest employers.
Queen's Degree Plus offers students a competitive edge in the graduate job market.
We recognise the importance of skills acquired through participation in extracurricular activities, such as voluntary work, part-time jobs and sport, which are attractive to potential employers. Gain accreditation for skills developed outside of your degree.
We prize entrepreneurship just as highly as academic ability
If you combine the two, we can give you everything else you need to achieve your ambitions.
You will get the opportunity to meet potential employers in London and Brussels.
