Queen’s inspires its students to realise their full potential. It combines the academic creditability of a traditional university with innovative teaching and a total commitment to delivering a first-class student experience.
Established by Queen Victoria in 1845, Queen's received its
Royal Charter from King Edward VII in 1908. As it enters its second
century, it has established itself as one of the UK's leading
research-intensive universities, sitting well within the top 250
universities in the world.
Queen's is a member of the Russell Group - a collective of
the UK's 20 leading research-intensive universities - and a
global player in research areas from cancer studies to
sustainability, wireless technology to poetry, and pharmaceuticals
to sonic arts. Its students are taught by academics informed
by the latest discoveries in their fields, and the University has
won four Queen's Anniversary Prizes for Further and Higher
Education for world-class achievement in green chemistry,
environmental research, palaeoecology and law.
From Nobel Prize winners and medical pioneers, to
political leaders and ambassadors of the arts,
Queen's graduates have made their mark around the world.
