Postgraduate Study


Find out what
it means

At Queen’s we like to think that postgraduate study really means something.

It means being part of ground-breaking research on a global stage. It means advancing your career, boosting your earning power, and making a commitment to professional development and excellence in everything you do.

It means Russell Group prestige where inspired learning comes from inspired teaching and a chance to focus on what really matters to you, whatever stage of your career or research journey.

  • Focus on professional development
  • Know more about yourself
  • Push beyond academic studies
  • Grow your creative confidence

Dona Das Gupta, MSc Business Analytics

"I've just finished a Masters' in Business Analytics. I've always wanted to go into computing and whilst I don't have a coding background, this degree has given me a great insight into it.

I've had a lot of inspirational lecturers, had access to great facilities like the Graduate School and the McClay Library, and you always meet some one in the Postgraduate community at Queen's experiencing something similar to you.

Belfast city is also so vibrant and multicultural to live in. "
