Tailor-made for Brickfields Students
Our first Brickfields cohort of students arrived from Malaysia at Queen’s in September 2015, joining the already internationally diverse School of Law.
Making our Brickfields students feel welcome right from the start is central to Queen’s School of Law. This begins with our pre-departure induction in Malaysia, closely followed by an international student welcome week on their arrival in Belfast.
Throughout the year we provide additional tailored classes designed to support students in their study and life in Belfast.
Our partnership is cemented by regular visits by Queen’s Law School staff to Brickfields Asia College and vice-versa. During these visits potential students can find out what Queen’s has to offer and see the level of facilities and support offered to students who choose to continue their studies at Queen's.

Exceptional Pathways to a Law Degree
Two pathways enable students from Brickfields to complete their undergraduate legal studies at Queen’s. Students spend their first year at Brickfields and their final two at Queen’s; or spend two years at Brickfields and their final year at Queen’s.
If successful, they are awarded an LLB degree. Students can choose from a wide selection of optional specialist subjects. These include commercial and corporate law, international trade and financial law, human rights and criminal law.
Brickfields International Students are High Achievers
One student went on to win a national award in her first six weeks at Queen’s; and a high proportion achieved upper seconds. Two students gained first class degrees.
In September 2016 of this year, 68 students joined us at Queen’s.
