Why Queen's?

Queen’s University Belfast

Founded in 1845 Queen’s University Belfast is the ninth oldest university in the UK. As well as being ranked in the top 200 universities in the world (Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2021) Queen’s is a proud member of the UK’s elite Russell Group of research intensive universities. This marks Queen’s as one of the most exceptional teaching universities in the country, alongside heavyweights such as Oxford, Cambridge, and Imperial College London.

The quality of teaching is recognised as being of the highest standard and our students are taught by academics passionate about the latest discoveries in their fields. Informed by exceptional teaching, all of our programmes come with a promise to produce world-class students.

In January 2020 Hillary Rodham Clinton became the Chancellor of Queen’s University Belfast. With her long-standing commitment to peace, stability and economic regeneration, she is a strong advocate for Northern Ireland and an inspirational role model for the Queen’s community.
