Exciting times ahead...

There's never been a better time to explore the exciting fields of: 

  • Computer Science;
  • Computing and Information Technology;
  • Software Engineering;
  • Business Information Technology

We are excited to be holding a Computing Parents’ Evening on Thursday 2nd December 2021.  This event is for parents/guardians and sons/daughters in years 11, 12 and 13 who are studying or considering studying Computing subjects at GCSE, A Level, or equivalent vocational qualifications.

Students and their parents will have the opportunity to hear about our degrees from current students, graduates, and academic staff.  Employers from local companies will also attend to share some of the opportunities for IT graduates both during study and after graduation.


Why Queen's University?

The UK's ninth oldest university, Queen's is a member of the Russell Group of 24 leading UK research-intensive institutions and is ranked 8th in the UK for its world-class research output (REF 2014). It is also in the top 173 of global universities (QS World Rank 2020).

Queen’s is a lead UK university in tackling the unequal representation of women in science and engineering. Queen’s holds 15 SWAN departmental Awards, including two Gold, as well as an institutional Silver Award.

Why Belfast?

Belfast is one of Europe’s most friendly and fashionable regional capitals. Described by Lonely Planet as a ‘must-see visitor destination’, Belfast and the Causeway Coast were named the Number 1 region in the world to visit in 2018 (Lonely Planet, 2017). 

According to Which? University, Northern Ireland has the lowest student cost of living in the UK. It's over £5000 per year cheaper for students to live in Northern Ireland compared to London (Which? University 2018)
