Queen’s University Belfast:

As a member of the Russell Group of the UK’s 20 leading research-intensive universities, Queen’s University Belfast is one of the leading universities in the UK and Ireland, providing world-class education underpinned by world-class research. Founded as Queen’s College in 1845, it became a university in 1908.

Today, it is an international centre of research and education rooted at the heart of Northern Ireland.

The university has won the Queen’s Anniversary Prize for Further and Higher Education on four occasions  for world-class achievement in green chemistry, environmental research, paleoecology and law.

A hat-trick of prestigious Times Higher Education (THE) Awards further recognizes the University’s contribution to society. Queen’s received the award for Excellence and Innovation in the Arts in 2008, was awarded the title of the UK’s Entrepreneurial University of the Year in 2009 and won the Outstanding Engineering Research Team of the Year category in 2010.

With more than 17,000 students and 3,500 staff, it is a dynamic and diverse institution, a magnet for inward investment, a patron of the arts and a global player in areas ranging from cancer studies to sustainability, and from pharmaceuticals to creative writing.
