Ranked in the top one per cent of universities in the world (QS World University Rankings 2015/16), Queen’s University Belfast was founded in 1845 as Queen's College Belfast, one of three Queen's Colleges in Ireland. It became an independent university in 1908.

Queen’s is a member of the Russell Group of the UK’s leading research-intensive universities and is ranked 8th in the UK for research intensity, having submitted 95% of academic staff, the fifth largest percentage of staff returned in REF2014. It has 14 subject areas ranked within the UK’s top 20 and 76% of its research classified as either world leading or internationally excellent (REF 2014).

The University has created four new flagship Global Research Institutes in the areas of Global Peace, Security and Justice; Cyber Security, Health Sciences; and Food Safety - building on Queen’s existing internationally recognised research excellence in those areas and having a significant impact on society.

 

The University was awarded a sixth Queen's Anniversary Prize in 2015, for world-class achievement in global cyber security. The University believes the best education happens alongside the best research, and its students enjoy being taught by world-leading academics at the cutting edge of their disciplines.

Queen’s is committed to enhancing its historic campus and the surrounding Conservation Areas and is over half-way through a ten-year £700M capital investment programme, which is providing cutting-edge facilities for education and research. These include the McClay Library, Computer Science Building, School of Law, Wellcome-Wolfson Institute for Experimental Medicine, Graduate School and Elms Student Village.
