The Graduate School

Queen’s unique partnership between academic schools and The Graduate School is what enables you to stand out as a ‘what’s next thinker’.

Supporting our postgraduates on this journey means training them not only to be subject specialists, but also to be thinkers, communicators, innovators, and leaders who are future-ready.
