WHY CHOOSE QUEEN'S
Ranked in the top 170 in the world for graduate prospects
(QS Graduate Employability Rankings 2022)
Queen’s is the only Russell Group university in Northern Ireland, a mark that our courses are informed by world-leading research.
FUNDING YOUR STUDY
NI students can access loans of up to £5,500 to cover tuition fees. That’s less than your projected earnings boost just a year after graduation.
Employees with a Master’s can expect to earn an average of £7,000 more a year than someone only holding a Bachelor’s degree.
