Coronavirus FAQs

  • International Baccalaureate examinations have been cancelled. How will this affect my application?

    The International Baccalaureate Organisation (IBO) has confirmed that May 2020 examinations for the IB Diploma Programme will not be held in any country.  IB students will be awarded grades by the IBO for each of their registered subjects on the basis of coursework marks and predicted grades.

    It is expected that the IBO will publish the IB results on 5 July 2020.  Queen’s University Belfast will accept the grades awarded in the IB Diploma this year as normal.  We anticipate that we will be able to make decisions on receipt of these results – please note that it can take us a number of days to process decisions. 

  • I have applied for a postgraduate course which requires a deposit payment. How should I pay this?

    The University has set up an online facility for the payment of deposits.  This has been used by many applicants who are unable to visit a bank because of restrictions caused by the COVID-19 outbreak.  You can access the link to make the payment by logging into your account on the postgraduate application portal.
