Applying to Queen’s?
Deciding to disclose a disability or long term condition is a personal decision and we strongly recommend that students inform us at application stage. Disclosure will not have any bearing on whether a student is offered a place at the University and all information regarding your condition will be treated in strict confidence.
Registering with Disability Services
- If you are coming to Queen's to study and wish to receive academic support through Disability Services please complete our online form.
- You will also be asked to upload medical evidence (see Guidelines for Medical Evidence).

Campus Welcome & Orientation
The Welcome and Orientation Programme is offered to new students during Fresher’s Week, (first week of Semester 1) and will give you an opportunity to get to know Queen's.
Of course, being at University is more than just studying on your course. There are opportunities for you to develop a wide range of skills, whether sporting or cultural - with over 150 clubs & societies to choose from there's plenty of choice for you. Getting involved in a student club is a great way to get to know other people and to settle into University.
The Welcome and Orientation programme offers a variety of events and workshops all designed to help you settle into University life. As well as events that have been organised centrally, you should look out for events which may be organised by your School.
