 Queen's University Belfast is a public research university, ranked 173rd in the world and is a member of the prestigious Russell Group of 24 leading UK research-intensive universities. Academic life at Queen's is organised into fifteen schools across three faculties. The present university was first chartered as Queen's College, Belfast in 1845. Its main building, the Lanyon Building, was designed by the English architect, Sir Charles Lanyon. At its opening, it had 23 professors and 195 students. In a recent census, the total student population was 23,850, of whom 18,795 were undergraduates and 5,055 postgraduates. The Sunday Times has described the Queen's admissions policy as "among the most socially inclusive in Britain and Northern Ireland". 99.5% of first degree entrants are from state schools. Queen's is also one of the largest employers in Northern Ireland, with a total workforce of 3,903.

Queen's has a large number of now-famous alumni, including former president of Ireland Mary McAleese; Nobel Prize winners poet Seamus Heaney and politician Lord Trimble.
