With 150 years of heritage, Queen’s University combines an international reputation as a leader in innovation and education with a life-changing student experience.
A wide range of opportunities are available to students – not just on the academic side, but also within the worlds of sport, music, volunteering, overseas study and much more.
“Thanks to Queen’s I have been able to make contact with people I would never have been able to speak to on my own. I was introduced to award-winning playwright Owen McCafferty, who acted as a mentor to me. With his help, I have had two of my own plays performed in The Brian Friel Theatre at Queen’s, as well as one of my plays representing Queen’s at the Irish Student Drama Festival and another being shortlisted for the International Student Playscript Competition.”
Seamus Collins, Joint French with Drama
“Since joining Queen’s, I have attended the inauguration of our Chancellor, attended meetings with high ranking politicians such as the deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg and I have stood with many other students waiting to catch a glimpse of Hillary Clinton on her visit to the University. It has been a thrilling experience to be a part of the ongoing history of this great historical university.”
Rizpah Brinkman, Politics, Philosophy and Economics
“The experience of being a student here has been the best time of my life. I have fully embraced student culture, actively participated in groups, social events and fundraising activities, enabling me to develop skills and interactions that will prepare me for the rest of my life. Before I attended Queen’s I would have shied away from presenting material in public, now I can stand in front of a lecture hall full of students and speak with confidence.”
