If you are an international student and you do not meet the entrance requirements, you should consider a preparation course at INTO Queen's University Belfast, which will prepare you for successful study on these degree courses. INTO Queen's University Belfast is based on the University campus and offers a range of courses including: International Foundation in Engineering and Science.

 

International Baccalaureate requirements

Students must obtain the International Baccalaureate Diploma. The Certificate is not acceptable.

The International Baccalaureate grades stated below are the equivalent entry requirements to the A-level grades stated above for courses with Clearing Vacancies. If a subject is required at A-level then it will be required as a Higher Level in the International Baccalaureate.

These grades should be treated as a guide as variations may occur in certain circumstances.

 

A-level grades

International Baccalaureate Diploma

AAA

36-37 points overall including 6,6,6 at Higher Level

AAB

34-35 points overall including 6,6,5 at Higher Level

ABB

33-34 points overall including 6,5,5 at Higher Level

BBB

32 points overall including 6,5,5 at Higher Level

About Queen's

Candidates who are not familiar with Queen's should consult the Study at Queen's of our website and the Course Finder for further details about our degrees.

Applying for Queen's Clearing Vacancies

Above is a list of courses at Queen's that have declared Clearing Vacancies and for which we may be prepared to consider applications from suitably qualified candidates. If you wish to apply for any of our Clearing Vacancies please read the information above to ensure that you are eligible for entry to your chosen course(s).

Column 4 gives an indication of the likely requirements in terms of A-levels. These requirements should be treated as a guide only as a final decision on the acceptability of any applicant can only be made after we have reviewed the full information contained on their UCAS application form. You should ensure that you can satisfy the subject requirements for any of the courses for which you decide to apply. Please note that attention will be paid to the grade achieved in the relevant subject(s) if appropriate. Candidates with slightly lower grades than those specified above may also enquire about the possibility of obtaining a place.

If you have completed qualifications other than A-levels/AS-levels, eg Edexcel Diplomas/Certificates, Access Course or Irish Leaving Certificate, you should also provide a copy of your Certificate(s) to accompany your Enquiry Form (see below).

If you have studied beyond A-level (ie you commenced another university/college course) you must provide full information when submitting your enquiry. Failure to do so will delay the processing of your enquiry and Vacancies, which are available, will be allocated to other applicants. Please note candidates who do not declare previous university/college attendance may have any offer of a place withdrawn.

Candidates wishing to be considered for these vacancies should complete an Enquiry Form (see below) and return it to the Admissions and Access Service as soon as possible. Candidates who have not previously applied to Queen's should also provide a brief CV and a copy of their GCSE results to accompany this form.

Candidates wishing to contact the Admissions and Access Service should check our Opening Times (see below).
