Applications for admission to full-time undergraduate and sandwich courses at the University should normally be made through the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS). Full information can be obtained from the UCAS website at:


UCAS will start processing applications for entry to Queen’s University Belfast each Autumn from early September. The normal closing date for the receipt of applications is in early January.

Applicants are advised to apply as early as possible, after making a careful and considered choice of courses. 

Earlier applicants normally receive decisions more quickly, however, UCAS accepts that some applicants, especially those from outside the UK, may find this difficult. Late applications are, in practice, accepted by UCAS throughout the remainder of the application cycle, but you should understand that they are considered by institutions at their discretion, and there can be no guarantee that they will be given the same full level of consideration as applications received by the official closing date. 

For Queen's, the institution code name is QBELF and the institution code isQ75. These should be entered in the Choices section of your UCAS application. Please note a Campus Code is not required. For further information on applying to study at Queen’s, please click here.
