Welcome to Queen’s University Belfast
Queen’s University Belfast is pleased to welcome visiting Global Bachelor's students from George Washington University as a part of our ongoing partnership. We hope you find the information here useful, which is designed to introduce you to studying abroad at Queen's.
Ranked in the top 200 universities in the world (Times 2021), Queen’s University offers an excellent academic experience.
Belfast is also an energetic and vibrant capital city – just ask the experts at Lonely Planet who love the city for its energy, lively atmosphere, and ‘dynamic young population that keeps the city on trend.’
The beauty is that it’s all easy and safe to explore. Whether you’re on a visit to the famous Game of Thrones filming locations or you want to explore caves, castles and coastline, you’ll find it all within an hour’s drive of Belfast.
With our location in Northern Ireland in the UK offering a unique blend of both UK and Irish cultures and a thriving campus in the city of Belfast, Queen’s serves as an ideal place to study abroad.
