Queen's University is recognised as a Foreign School by the US Department of Education and holds a Title IV Agreement. Our School Code is G22736. This website provides guidance for US students about accessing federal and private loans to fund their studies at Queen's University Belfast.
Like most Foreign Schools, Queen's University Belfast does not have a Financial Aid Office. US Loans are administered at Queen's by International Student Support, based in The International and Postgraduate Student Centre- email firstname.lastname@example.org. Once you have applied for Federal Student Aid we will guide you through the process by email. You are also welcome to call in anytime to the office if you have a query.
US Federal loans are generally available to eligible students who have received an unconditional offer to study at Queen’s; will be studying at least half-time and are not in default on a previous loan or exceeding Federal loan limits. To maintain eligibility throughout the year, students must be making satisfactory academic progress; cannot take more than 150% of the normal time to complete a programme (Approved leave of absence will not be considered in the calculation) and cannot study in the US.
Masters or PhD programmes
Diploma or certificate courses
Medicine, Nursing and veterinary programmes
There are three types of US Federal Loan – Subsidized (available to undergraduates only), Unsubsidized and Plus Loans (available to graduate students or the parents of dependant undergraduates). You may borrow only up to the estimated cost of attendance for your programme (including tuition, subsistence and airfare)
Please note that all loans must be repaid. It is the responsibility of the borrower to repay the loan, and to clarify the interest rates, repayment terms and conditions prior to application.
