The orientation programme is held prior to the first semester in mid September. A second programme is also held in early January. Both programmes give new students the opportunity to meet the staff of the International Student Support team, other academic and administrative staff, Students' Union representatives and other students.
Information is provided on adjusting to university academic study, life in university accommodation, living expenses and local immigration requirements. The programmes include tours of the University's academic and recreational facilities and the City of Belfast. These programmes have proved very popular. They help new students to adapt to University life at Queen's.
In September, the International Students' Orientation Programme is followed by a Welcome Week of activities for all new students - national and international.
This will provide you with an opportunity to get to know Queen's students from Northern Ireland and the rest of the British Isles, in addition to other international students.
