Besides your History module lectures, tutorials, workshops and online Discussion Forums, there's lots to keep you occupied and entertained.

There is also a Common Room for staff and students in the School. Take a look at some images and interviews in our Encounters in the Common Room section!
And that's just in the School of History and Anthropology! Check out the Prospective Students section of the University website for further details on the fantastic opportunities and facilities here at Queen's.
