For students starting at Queen’s in September 2021, our Undergraduate Award is a great way to cut your costs. Three Queen’s students look back on how an Undergraduate scholarship really made a difference for them.
Save on fees and make your parents happy
“There is something very special about a Queen’s Scholarship,” said Alice Poole, an architecture student at Queen’s. “Getting your place at Queen’s and then being rewarded? I don’t know of many other unis that offer this kind of thing".

One of the best perks was the peace of mind her parents felt:
“My parents were very grateful for the scholarship. Especially because they pay my rent. They were like, “Yes, this is brilliant, we don’t need to pay nearly as much.”
Makes moving to Belfast so much easier
“When I was busy making my uni decisions I can remember how confusing it felt,” said Peter Moor, who studied for a BA in English and Linguistics. “Queen’s really stands out amongst scholarships at other universities.”

With the extra money you save, there are some amazing things you could put the money towards. “The whole GB Scholarship, well it helped make the transition over to Belfast that little bit easier.”
James Hadley-Piggin, (BA Social Anthropology) said: “The GB scholarship benefitted me in a variety of ways. "Financially, it’s fantastic and the money for flights was very convenient and saved a lot of money. It’s not just money towards flights home but the little things that count, like your own ensuite room. ”
