International Students and those from outside the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland

The International Welcome and Orientation Programme will include many different types of sessions and activities aimed at getting you settled into life in Belfast and at Queen’s. It is an extremely valuable time to meet new people and make friends. You are expected to take part in the programme and we look forward to getting to know you during the event.

Full details of the International Welcome and Orientation week can be found on the International Student Support website, together with details of the Meet and Greet service and how to register.

International students will then be able to take part in the University’s main Welcome programme which follows the International Welcome and Orientation week.

University accommodation will be available at a fixed rate for students wishing to attend the Orientation Programme. Please note that this option will only be available to students who have reserved places in University accommodation for the academic year.
