International & Postgraduate Student Centre
Queen’s University is one of only a few universities in the UK to demonstrate its strategic commitment to enhancing the student experience by providing a dedicated facility for its international and postgraduate students. The new International and Postgraduate Student Centre is now open, and alongside the Student Guidance Centre and the Students’ Union, forms a pro-active and comprehensive support and services infrastructure for the student body. Located close to the McClay Library, this new Centre will provide dedicated support to international and postgraduate students and will act as a hub for many aspects of information, advice and guidance for international and postgraduate students. Students will have the opportunity to meet and socialise with their peers from other schools and disciplines in a welcoming and relaxed environment. Wireless access to the University network is provided throughout the Centre..
The International Student Support Centre and the Postgraduate Student Centre operate within the building. Opening hours will be 9:00am-10:000pm Monday-Friday.
The International Student Support Centre,
located on the ground floor aims to support, guide and advise international
students enabling them to maximise their student experience at Queen’s. Core
services will include immigration advice; welcome and orientation; general
support and advice; and cultural awareness training. The Postgraduate Student
Centre located on the first and second floors serves as a focal point for the
broader postgraduate community, complementing the facilities and services
currently provided by our academic Schools. The Postgraduate Student Centre
delivers the Postgraduate Skills training programme for research students,
which offers an extensive range of workshops, courses and seminars alongside
numerous supported student led initiatives.
Additionally, Postgraduate research students can access one-to-one
guidance and advice in areas related to careers, employability and personal
effectiveness and all postgraduate students can access tailored information and
advice on a range of postgraduate issues.
The second floor of the building provides dedicated study and social space for the postgraduate community. This includes a computer facility offering 50 networked computers with black and white and colour printing, scanning and photocopying facilities. The second floor also houses the Postgraduate Students’ Association (PGSA) which represents the interests of all postgraduate students in the University and coordinates a number of research related and social events throughout the year.
