Liza talks about how Queen's was the right choice for her daughter.

HOME TO TEACHING EXCELLENCE

As a member of the Russell Group, Queen’s is recognised as one of the UK’s 24 leading research-intensive universities. Our researchers are addressing many Global Challenges, tackling the problems facing society, such as Health, Food, Conflict and Technology.

From the state of the art McClay Library, to the cutting edge Computer Science Building, and purpose built School of Law, including a Moot Court Room, our constantly evolving campus has received over £700million in funding to ensure it is an innovative learning environment for our exceptional students.

BELFAST: THE PERFECT UK STUDENT CITY

One of the UK’s most welcoming, vibrant and affordable student cities, Belfast has the lowest student rent in the UK (NatWest Student Living Index 2019).

Although Belfast is a major capital city, it boasts the friendliness of a small town, making it the perfect destination for students living and studying away from home for the first time.

Street crime and burglary rates in Belfast are much lower than in comparable European or American cities and Belfast has also been named the safest region in the UK (British Crime Surveys, 2015/16).

“Queen’s felt right for my daughter. Aesthetically, Queen’s is gorgeous; educationally, it’s a Russell Group, it’s well established, its historic and it has a great reputation.”
