Students, whose first language is not English, wishing to develop confidence in using English in an academic environment are advised to attend a four week pre-sessional course at INTO Queen's University Belfast. This 20-hour per week course concentrates on academic English and prepares you for university study. The four week course runs from Monday 11 August to Friday 5 September 2014. For further information please email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.intohigher.com/queens.
If you decide to enrol for this course, please advise the Admissions and Access Service as soon as possible so that we can make the necessary changes to your Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS), before you apply for your visa.
Applicants who have indicated a disability should already have completed a questionnaire, provided by the Admissions and Access Service, to identify their support needs. If you have not received a questionnaire, please contact the Admissions and Access Service.
The University is committed to supporting students with disabilities and has developed a range of support mechanisms to enable students to participate fully in university life. Support is provided to students with a wide range of needs, including physical and mobility difficulties, sensory impairments, medical conditions, specific learning difficulties such as dyslexia, Autistic Spectrum Disorders and mental health difficulties. Applicants who have disclosed their disability will be contacted by Disability Services during the summer months to arrange an initial assessment. In the meantime, further information on the support available can be found at:
Applicants can also contact Disability Services, should they have any queries or wish to discuss their individual needs.
The International and Postgraduate Centre (IPSC) provides dedicated spaces and services for international and postgraduate students.
The IPSC is also home to the International Student Support Office, which specialises in immigration advice for international applicants and students as well as support while you are in Belfast. Staff in this office are the only staff at the University who are permitted to give you immigration advice and will liaise closely with the Admissions Service to ensure you have the proper documents to be able to study at Queen’s.
