Studying Abroad at Queen's

The School welcomes applications from international students who wish to attend under the Study Abroad programme. The Study Abroad programme offers the opportunity for students, who are already enrolled at a university overseas, to take time out from their own institutions and spend either one semester or a full academic year at Queen's.

The Study Abroad Programme is particularly popular with students from the USA, Canada and Australia. Many US students choose to come to Queen's through providers such as the Institute for Study Abroad at Butler University or Arcadia University's College for Global Studies. We also have a dedicated study abroad programme 'Society, Conflict and Peace in Northern Ireland' hosted by CIEE. However, students can also choose to apply directly to Queen's and can find more detail on how to do this on our Study Abroad web pages.

In addition, the School has recently established bilateral student exchanges with two US partners, the College of Charleston, and the University of Illinois at Springfield.

We have a wide range of ERASMUS exchange partnerships with European universities.

International students can choose from a wide range of modules offered in both History and Anthropology. Irish, British, European and World History courses cover subjects as varied as 'Politics and Society in 20th-Century Ireland', 'African-American Women', 'The Second World War in Europe' and 'the Cold War in Asia'. Anthropologists may decide to study 'Religion and Ritual', 'The Anthropology of Ireland' or 'Sex and Gender'. There is a wealth of information on the content of our modules in the Prospective Students section of our website.

Queen's University Belfast is a great choice for your Study Abroad. We are a member of the prestigious Russell Group, one of the top twenty research intensive universities in the United Kingdom, alongside Cambridge and Oxford. You will be taught by staff engaged in extending the frontiers of knowledge in their research areas and Queen's is one of the leading centres for historical and anthropological research on the island of Ireland.
