A friendly university in the heart of vibrant Belfast

If you are looking for a welcoming institution with very strong academic leadership and a progressive, inclusive approach to campus life in a fascinating city, then Queen’s University Belfast could be for you. It offers a friendly atmospheric campus that is convenient to Belfast’s thriving social scene, shopping and cafe culture. It’s quiet Victorian quad offers peaceful study areas and meeting places just a stone’s throw from your accommodation and the excitement of city life.

Queen’s has earned an international reputation for academic excellence in social justice, peace, and reconciliation studies. You’ll find outstanding courses in each of these areas, including a selection of unique courses focused on divided societies, and a flexible approach to curriculum choices.

There are resources for study abroad students everywhere at QUB. You have the study abroad office, the VISA and immigration advisors, your department advisor (kind of a temporary major advisor while you're abroad), any of your professors, and of course your RA's and other res staff. Help can always be found, and you will never be left completely on you own. ”
