At the School of Law we welcome the diversity and character that our international students bring to us and encourage applications from overseas students. Our undergraduate and postgraduate cohorts include students from France, Spain, Sweden, India, Pakistan, Africa, North America and China. International students come to us in a variety of ways. Some apply through the normal channels of the Admissions Office of the University in order to stay here for the whole period of their study and take their degrees from Queen's. Students coming from other universities may come to us via Socrates or Erasmus Exchange Schemes which we have with their home universities.

Belfast BT2 7DB
Belfast is well connected by sea and air routes to the rest of the world. Northern Ireland is famed for its natural beauty and many students enjoy sightseeing and travel during their time here. There are a number of good books on Northern Ireland designed for every kind of traveller and the Northern Irish Tourist Board is a excellent point to begin enquiries.
Belfast has a great diversity of international residents and visitors -- students, business and professional workers, tourists and the like -- as well as sizeable ethnic populations. Current and previous international students are and have been agreeably surprised by the contradictions between their experience of life in Belfast, and international media representations of the city. In fact Belfast is one of Britain's most compelling and cosmopolitan cities, with a great deal of ethnic diversity; you will find plenty of restaurants and shops catering to a wide variety of multicultural interests.
