Postgraduate January 2022

When will my programme start?

Queen’s University Belfast will commence teaching as planned on 20 September 2021 for many programmes.  However, Queen’s has revised start dates for a number of Postgraduate Master’s programmes for the academic year 2021-22. To be clear:

(i) For some programmes, there will be an option of choosing either September 2021 or January 2022 start date. In this case, offer-holders may choose the option which best suits their circumstances.

(ii) For some programmes, September 2021 start date option will no longer be offered, and all students will be invited to start the course in January 2022 instead.           

(iv) For remaining programmes, September 2021 start date still applies.

For information on individual programme start dates where there is an alternative or revised start date, please refer to the table below:


Y= Yes, programme is offered
