About Us

At Queen’s University Belfast, we want everyone to have the chance to learn. We are committed to providing students with an education experience that is on par with the best universities in the world.

We are also committed to ensuring that those who have the ability to have such an education should have an opportunity to do so, regardless of their background, abilities or beliefs.

The Widening Participation Team aims to work with young people, teachers, schools, colleges, parents and older learners to ensure that those who have the ability to succeed in higher education should have the opportunity to do so.

Our role involves offering a range of activities at schools and on the Queen's campus to raise awareness of higher education, enrich the school curriculum, and support attainment through personalised tutoring.
