As the leading UK university on the Island of Ireland, over 100 students from North America come to Queen's University Belfast each year to study abroad for a semester or an academic year, taking time out of their home university. There are approximately 24,143 students at Queen's University. 

Choosing Queen’s allows students to study at a world-class university, make new friends and live alongside local young people from Ireland and the UK for a truly immersive experience in another culture. 

Study abroad students at Queen’s are taught by world-leading researchers and experts in their field through lectures, tutorials or practical laboratories, in state-of-the-art facilities.

Each study abroad student has a study adviser assigned to them so they can easily adapt to the different academic learning environment. Not only gaining new marketable skills and enhancing career prospects through their experience, study abroad students at Queen’s can also transfer credits back to their home university.
