Prospective Students Information

THINKING OF 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.

Details of the application procedures are given on the Admissions and Access Service webpage and we would also advise you to consult the University's Undergraduate or Postgraduate prospectus for specific information.

If you are applying for an undergraduate degree, the easiest way to disclose is to tick the disability box when completing your UCAS form.

Postgraduate students can disclose their disability on their University application.

If you’d rather not do this, you can contact us directly.
