Founded as Queen’s College in 1845, it became a university in its own right in 1908. 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. The University has won the Queen’s Anniversary Prize for Higher and Further Education on five occasions – for Northern Ireland’s Comprehensive Cancer Services programme and for world-class achievement in green chemistry, environmental research, paleoecology and law. As a member of Business in The Community, Queens University Belfast has been involved in a number of programmes including successfully reducing its environmental impact.
