Queen's University Belfast was admitted to the prestigious Russell Group of UK research-intensive universities in November 2006.[5][6] Independent league tables published by The Guardian newspaper in 2007 placed the university at number 28 out of 123 institutes of higher education within the United Kingdom, commenting "Queen's is one of the UK's top universities, with a good academic reputation, especially in medicine and engineering".[7] The Times placed the university at 32 out of 109 ranked universities in its 2007 Good University Guide.[8] Its sister paper, The Sunday Times placed Queen's at number 37 of 119 in its University Guide 2006 League Table, up two places from the previous year.[9] This article or section does not adequately cite its references or sources. ...

Admissions and students

Entrants to Queen's have, on average, 359 A/AS-level points and there are currently 5.3 applications per place.[11] The Sunday Times has described the Queen's admissions policy as "among the most socially inclusive in Britain and Northern Ireland".[11] 99.5 per cent of first degree entrants are from state schools,[12] although this is mainly due to the lack of private schools in Northern Ireland. The A-level, short for Advanced Level, is a General Certificate of Education qualification in England, Northern Ireland and Wales, usually taken by students during the optional final two years of secondary school (Years 12 & 13*, commonly called the Sixth Form except for Scotland), or at a separate sixth form...

The total student population is 24,560, of whom 19,165 are undergraduates and 5,395 postgraduates. Of the undergraduate population, 18,145 are from the UK, 640 from elsewhere in the European Union and 380 are from outside the EU. The figures for postgraduates are 4,115 from the UK, 650 from elsewhere in the EU, and 630 from the rest of the world, mainly from China, India, Malaysia, Singapore and Hong Kong.[1]


Queen's was established as a non-sectarian institution, with the aim of attracting both Protestant and Catholic students. While the university does not publish data on the religion affiliation of its students, Rupert Taylor, who conducted his PhD research on the university during The Troubles, argued in an article published in 1988 that "Whilst in the past, especially before the Second World War, Catholics were under-represented this is not currently the case". Taylor cites data showing that Catholic representation amongst undergraduates rose from 21.9 per cent in 1958/59 to 27.4 per cent in 1968/69 and 42.5 per cent in 1978/79.[13] By the late 1990s, 54 per cent of Queen's students were Catholics, compared to a 48 per cent share of the Northern Ireland population aged 18-25.[14] The growing share of Catholics in the student population is in part due to the tendency of middle-class Protestants to go to university in Britain rather than Northern Ireland.[13] Rupert Taylor is Associate Professor of Political Studies at the University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg. ...
