Many of the students at Union are taking Queen’s University Belfast degrees in Theology and we would love to see even more students from GB. When choosing a university, Queen’s should be on the list of any school leaver from England, Scotland, Wales, the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man. Queen’s is in the prestigious Russell Group, it’s ranked in the top 250 universities in the world, and it’s one of the oldest universities in the UK. But these are just statistics. After all, a lot of universities can claim prestige, history, and impressive stats. What really sets Queen’s apart and makes it worth that 45–minute flight?
Well, for starters, Queen’s is willing to reward you just for being a hard–working GB student. Choosing a school that’s more than a train ride away can lead to extra costs, stress, and inconvenience. If you meet the terms of your acceptance and make Queen’s your Firm Acceptance choice through UCAS, the university will happily help you with those extra costs. You’ve worked hard to meet the entry requirements and to prepare for university, so Queen’s wants to reward your willingness to venture a bit further from home.
But what kind of rewards are we talking about? The GB scholarship is offered to all students who meet the conditions of their offer. Even better, it doesn’t involve an application or an interview. Students who are eligible for the scholarship will be contacted automatically, earning up to £1,750 off of their tuition. And it’s more than just a fee reduction. Here are some of the benefits you’ll receive:
Let’s say you’re not planning on flying home during the school year, you’ve got your housing already sorted, you don’t have any boxes to ship, you don’t like seeing movies, and you never exercise. In that case, you might be pretty unimpressed with this list. Well, if none of these benefits appeal to you, you can forgo them altogether in favour of a higher fee reduction (in which case, you could be receiving up to £2,500 off of your tuition!). This scholarship is only meant to help you—it’s up to you to say what would be most helpful.
