No more than a 20-minute walk from the city centre, Stranmillis College was founded in 1922 to provide state-funded teacher training in Northern Ireland.
Today the College is a multi-professional institution, no longer engaged solely in the education of teachers. It offers pre-service and in-service courses, undergraduate and postgraduate, for some 700 full-time students.
It is also involved in induction courses and offers a range of consultancy services to Northern Ireland schools, education and library boards and other education agencies.
All College courses lead to a qualification validated and awarded by Queen's. As Stranmillis is a University college, all its students are also enrolled at Queen's and have access to the usual university facilities just a short walk from the College, which is located in south Belfast.
