International Students

Queen’s University Belfast is one of the twenty research-led universities in the UK's Russell Group, and is one of the leading centres for historical and anthropological research on the island of Ireland. Students from all over the world come for our undergraduate and postgraduate programmes, to study abroad for a semester or a year, or to participate in one of our three-week international summer schools. US students taking an undergraduate or postgraduate programme will be pleased to know that despite its excellent reputation, Queen's is less expensive than the average four-year private American university. An undergraduate programme will be completed in three years compared to the four years it takes to complete a degree in the US and a taught postgraduate programme is undertaken in one year. Queen's is approved by the US Department of Education to accept US financial aid. Our funding webpages set out details on potential sources of funding.
