Established in 1845, we are the ninth-oldest university in the UK, and one of the most beautiful campuses. As a place of excellence we have produced Nobel Laureates, leading global academics and thought leaders including the physicist John Stewart Bell, Poet Laureate Seamus Heaney, Sir Robert Hart, Inspector General China’s Imperial Maritime Custom Service and Professor Máire O’Neill, widely regarded as one of Europe’s leading cryptography experts.

A member of the prestigious Russell Group, we are a leading research-intensive university, combining outstanding research and education, we have 21 subjects in the UK top 20 and 13 subjects in the UK top 10. Our students are taught by world-leading academics and our teaching is consistently judged to be of the highest standards. We are categorised in the top 75 universities in Europe for Teaching Excellence and 14 of our subjects are placed in the top 200 in the world.

Over 24,000 students study with us and over 85 countries are represented by the student body. Our global alumni network spans 120 countries and we take great pride in our high levels of employability. We are highly postitioned within the top 140 in the world for graduate prospects with 96 per cent of our undergraduates in employment or further study six months after graduation.

A dedicated team across our campus ensure every one of our students receive emotional and physical care and assistance during their time with us. Student well-being is central to our ethos, and 93 per cent of our current international students say they are happy with their life at Queen’s.

Queen’s is in Belfast, a modern capital city, known for its accessibility affordability and safety. A ‘must-see visitor destination’, (Lonely Planet 2017/18), Belfast is over £5,000 per year cheaper for students to live in Northern Ireland compared to London. Northern Ireland has also been named the safest region in the UK (British Crime Surveys 2017/18). It is just an hour from all other major UK cities plane and is well connected to Europe and the rest of the world.
