Science at Queens

"[The Sciences] allow us to write with a piece of chalk on a blackboard the very structure of the universe and the shape of it. I mean… what's not to love?" - Dara O'Briain

This is an exciting time for school leavers to pursue a career in science-related fields. There is a high demand for graduates in Northern Ireland, GB and globally, and starting salaries for Queen’s University graduates in the Sciences currently start from £18K.

At our Science at Queen's event in March 2020, attendees will have a unique opportunity to hear about some of the reasons why they (or their son or daughter!) should consider a science degree. They will also hear from graduates of our courses and employers, and have the opportunity to ask questions.

Our Student Hub will afford attendees the opportunity to chat with our current students regarding their course experiences and view demonstrations of some of the projects they have been working on. There will also be time for our guests to meet and engage freely with our academic staff and industry employers. They will be available to discuss and highlight potential opportunities for employment and placements, and further answer any questions.
