INTO Queens Belfast Programs

INTO Queens’ academic programs have been carefully designed with the Queens University to help give the highest quality preparation for undergraduate and postgraduate study.

Small class sizes, cutting edge technology, countless learning resources, and the very best teachers make studying at INTO Queens University Belfast both fruitful and fun. We ensure that you will get the individual attention you need during your classes.

The INTO Queens International Foundation program prepares you for direct entry to the first year of an undergraduate course at Queen’s University or at other UK universities. The program is designed by NCUK and recognized by Queen’s University Belfast.

Progression to Queen’s University is guaranteed, subject to successful completion of the relevant Foundation pathway and meeting the specified grades for entry to your selected degree program. Students who successfully complete the International Foundation program are also guaranteed a university place in their chosen field of study at one of NCUK’s owner universities including Manchester, Sheffield, Liverpool and Leeds.

Two pathways are offered:

  • International Foundation in Business, Humanities and Social Sciences
    For bachelors degrees in Accounting, Economics, Management, Finance, Humanities, Social Sciences and Law.
