WHERE HERITAGE MEETS FUTURE THINKING

At Queen’s you’ll have access to facilities that bring your course to life. Our constantly evolving campus has received over £700million in funding to make it future ready.

From the state of the art McClay Library, to the cutting edge Computer Science Building, and purpose built School of Law, including a Moot Court Room, our teaching facilities have transformed our historic campus into an innovative learning environment for our exceptional students.

WHERE IS QUEEN'S?

Known as the “Queen’s Quarter”, the area surrounding our campus is the most vibrant district of Belfast, the capital city of Northern Ireland. Here, you’ll find everything from museums and art galleries to world cuisine, as well as your classes of course, all within easy walking distance.

The beauty of Belfast is that you’re never far from beaches, forests and mountains if you need some headspace. If the landscapes and landmarks look familiar, it’s because many of them have featured in Game of Thrones. Top day-tripping spots include the Giant’s Causeway, the Mourne Mountains and, of course, Derry/Londonderry for the ‘Derry Girls’ experience including a visit to the iconic mural of the Channel 4 show.

THE LOWEST COST OF STUDENT LIVING IN THE UK

Northern Ireland’s hidden secret is that it has the lowest student cost of living in the UK (Which? University, 2018), making Belfast a great city to live in when you’re a student.

UNDERGRADUATE AWARD 2021

Our exclusive Undergraduate Award is available for students commencing their undergraduate degree at Queen’s in September 2021 and 2022. This award is available to students from England, Scotland, Wales, Isle of Man and the Channel Islands who achieve ABB or above in their A-levels or equivalent qualification(s) acceptable to the University.

The University will pay half of your accommodation costs (BT1, BT2 and BT9 only) in the first year. You’ll get a single en-suite room in your first year of study for less than £9 per day, inclusive of bills. That's a saving of over £2,300!

You will also receive a sum of £180 towards flights home for each year of study. This will be paid into your bank account in November of each year.

MOVING TO NORTHERN IRELAND

Did you know that Queen’s University is only a one hour flight away from most cities in England, Scotland and Wales?

In fact, Belfast has excellent travel connections, and the cost of getting to Queen’s University is typically cheaper and quicker than travelling to other universities in England, Scotland or Wales.

GB students are guaranteed university accommodation in first year and our Residential Life Team organise regular socials and trips throughout each semester to help you make friends, explore Northern Ireland and settle in.

“When I first visited Belfast, I was immediately taken by the city’s culture and beauty. I’ve always felt like part of the community here in Belfast. The people here are the friendliest I’ve ever met."
