Queen’s has a history of investing in people and building brighter futures. It’s a place where learning and research come together to create new and exciting global opportunities.

It is highly respected across the globe as a centre of teaching excellence and innovative research.

Taught by top academics, these degrees enable you to become an expert in your chosen field, with the prospect of a top career in a multi-national company. The university has a rich heritage and a renowned history of producing Nobel Laureates, leading global academics and national and international leaders over the last 170 years. Queen's is at the heart of Belfast's culture, as well as its art and social scenes.

It is a part of a bustling, cosmopolitan city boasting a vibrant social life and rich cultural heritage. The cutting-edge facilities include a financial Trading Room with Bloomberg terminals, interdisciplinary health and life sciences research facilities and innovative engineering hubs. The university has benefitted from a recent investment in its infrastructure, with over £350m spent on buildings and improved facilities, including the construction of a new graduate school and the Wellcome Wolfson Building Centre for Experimental Medicine, which hopes to attract over 1000 leading scientists and clinicians from around the world.

The Queen’s Graduate School is a dedicated social and academic space for postgraduate students. Global Research Institutes are flagships for interdisciplinary research in areas of major societal challenge.

They bring together a critical mass of excellent researchers from a wide range of disciplines in world-class facilities to tackle some of the greatest global issues of our age. Alongside academic study, the university places an equal emphasis on the acquisition of practical skills relevant to the workplace. It recently introduced 'employer partnership degrees' that allow students to combine work placements with classroom studies.
