Is English not your native language?

Students must be able to demonstrate their competence in English in order to benefit fully from their course of study or research. Non-EEA nationals must also satisfy the UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) immigration requirements for English language before the University can issue a Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS) for visa purposes.

Please view the Coursefinder for details of the English Language requirements for entry to individual degree programmes.

English Language Courses

INTO Queen's University Belfast offers a range of English Language courses, which may assist students to meet the required standard of English language to be eligible for entry to degree programmes at the University. These include:

English for University Study
