Institution Details

Queen's University Belfast



Going all the way back to 1845, Queen's University Belfast is the ninth oldest university in the United Kingdom and has a legacy of over 150 years. It has more than 17,000 students, of which about 1,200 are international students coming from over 70 countries.

Nelson Mandela and former Prime Ministers Tony Blair and Bertie Ahern also received honorary degrees from Queen's University Belfast.

The City of Belfast

Queen’s University Belfast is situated in the beautiful, green suburbs of South Belfast, a busy area only 15 minutes’ walk from Belfast’s city centre.



Belfast’s leisure hotspots include the Odeon Belfast cinema and the Odyssey Arena which has a bowling alley and a cinema. The Odeon Belfast cinema is located in Belfast’s newest shopping centre Victoria square which is close to restaurants like La Tasca, Gourmet Burger Kitchen and Pizza Express.

There is also the Grand Opera House, a fantastic representation of Victorian architecture first unveiled in 1895 and one of Belfast's most adored destinations for theatre, musicals, operas, ballet performances and concerts.

Belfast also houses St Anne’s Cathedral, Holywood Priory Church and Bangor Abbey, all of which possess impressive historical architecture. For those who appreciate both historical and modern furnishings, a good place to drop by would be Belfast Castle, which was renovated in 1978 at a cost of £2 million. The Belfast Castle is one of Belfast’s most well-known landmarks.

There is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site close to Belfast. Named the Giant's Causeway, it is an place of incredible basalt columns left by a volcanic eruption many years ago.

Belfast is served by two airports: Belfast International Airport and George Best Belfast City Airport. Most key British cities are within an hour's flight from these two airports. With a large graduate cohort, a long history, some remarkable architecture and lively nightlife, Belfast has much to offer.
