Who can run an event?


The Development Week events can be delivered by academics and staff from across the University.

What type of activities take place?


Activities range from concerts to courses and field trips to fairs. Events take place across the University Campus, both indoors and outdoors, or further afield such as an employer’s office in the centre of Belfast or a field trip to Dublin. The possibilities for creative and innovative activity are endless.

Why run an event in Development Weeks?


Delivering an event as part of the Development Weeks programme is an opportunity for:
- Academic staff to engage with and inspire students, providing insight into a new topic or skill
- Students to gain self-confidence, develop their skills and acquire professional experience
- Students to gain Degree Plus accredition through participation, Internships and the Student Led Activity Fund
- Increased collaboration amongst the Queen's community
- Employers to engage directly with students to promote their organisation
