The Graduate School

What We Do

The Graduate School offers a unique facility for postgraduate students by providing a range of support services including skills development workshops and events to add value to the overall student experience. The Graduate School aims to support postgraduates in the development of transferable skills that can be applied to their study and future career.

We have a team of dedicated Graduate School Assistants based on the ground floor, who can signpost all postgraduates in the right direction whether it's information on securing a postgraduate award or applying for student-led initiative funding. We invite postgraduates to call in and speak to our Information Team at reception regarding any postgradute relater query. Alternatively contact can be made via email or telephone using the information below.

As well as offering a range of support services, the Graduate School offers an ideal place to meet peers and academics in a relaxed environment or to catch up on work using the computer suite or free wi-fi zones. We have a dedicated silent study, which seats over 65 students, as well as an informal seating area, both located on the 1st floor.

An inspiring and stimulating environment

The ground floor offers reception and administrative support space, training facilities, group and meeting rooms. The building’s first floor features a central open-plan, double height, vaulted space with masonry gothic arches and aisles to each side.

This is a truly impressive and beautiful internal space within which to study, relax and socialise - housing a dedicated Postgraduate Silent Study Room (with individual study desks) in one area, as well as an informal seating area.

A global choice for postgraduate students 

The standard of dedicated facilities, global research links and world leading academic expertise combine to make Queen’s University a top global choice for postgraduate education and research, with the new Graduate School a place to which students can aspire. 

Creating the leaders of tomorrow

Additionally the Graduate School is a hub for a wide range of activities for postgraduate students, creating a community built on excellence, intellectual challenge and inclusiveness that will transform lives and inspire futures, preparing Queen’s postgraduates to become influential leaders in their chosen fields. 

A vibrant centre of activity

Above all, the Graduate School is a vibrant centre of activity and intellectual exchange for postgraduate students, which integrates fully the needs of Masters students as much as PhD researchers. It caters to the differing needs of lab-based, international, both full-time and part-time students, as well as students with disabilities.
