Irish History Live

Studying History at Queen's

What is university life like for a History student at QUB?


Read about some of the Irish History modules taught at Queen's University Belfast


Besides your History module lectures, tutorials, workshops and online Discussion Forums, there's lots to keep you occupied and entertained.

You could, for example, join the Student Historical Society, drop in for a lunchtime dance class, organise or attend one of the many seminars, lectures or conferences within the School, put together a charity event, participate in the School's annual Formal, or even take a field trip abroad!

There is also a Common Room for staff and students in the School. Take a look at some images and interviews in our Encounters in the Common Room section!


And that's just in the School of History and Anthropology! Check out the Prospective Students section of the University website for further details on the fantastic opportunities and facilities here at Queen's.
