A Foundation for Life

Students at Graduation ceremony

We offer a dynamic and world-class portfolio of programmes and opportunities. As the winner of five consecutive Times Higher Education Awards (2008-2012), including 'Entrepreneurial University of the Year' 2009, Queen’s ensures that students will gain an educational qualification that is valued throughout the world. Alongside that, they will learn a range of life skills which will be crucial to their future careers.

As a member of the Russell Group of the UK’s 20 leading research-intensive universities, Queen’s is recognised as one of the very best educational establishments in the UK and Ireland. The ‘Queen’s Experience’ encompasses both intellectual activity and a range of cultural, social and sporting opportunities which can be enjoyed through more than 150 student clubs and societies.

One way to ensure that our students stand out from the crowd is through the Degree Plus programme. It is officially recognised by employers and gives each individual who takes part the chance to gain accreditation for their activities.

Our specialist team in the Student Guidance Centre provide support and advice on planning the route from study to graduate employment. There is practical help on offer on building skills and work experience, development programmes, effective job applications, interview skills, postgraduate study and training.

We believe our students deserve the best. The award-winning McClay Library is one of the most impressive university libraries in the world; the re-designed Elms Village provides superior accommodation; a £9 million refurbishment has transformed the Students’ Union; and there has been a £7 million extension at the Physical Education Centre.

The academic, cultural and social experience awaiting your son or daughter at Queen’s is one they will cherish and which will reward them for the rest of their lives.
