Queen's University BelfastWritten by Dorothy Kenny
Queen’s University Belfast (www.qub.ac.uk) has a proud academic tradition that stretches back over 160 years from its establishment by Queen Victoria in 1845 as one of three Queen’s Colleges in Ireland. It received its Royal Charter from King Edward VII in 1908, becoming an independent university in its own right. Today its beautiful campus attracts visitors from far and wide.
