Ten Steps to Planning and Writing an Excellent Assignment

Sitting down to prepare and write an assignment can be a daunting task.  See here for our helpful resource.

Presbyterian Community Centre

The Presbyterian Chaplaincy at Queen’s, Derryvolgie Hall (49a Derryvolgie Avenue), is term–time home to some Presbyterian students but also serves all Presbyterian students during their studies: View here

During the teaching semesters, the chaplain, Rev David Gray, is regularly present in Union College for worship or at other times. If you want to get involved with the chaplaincy, or you would value a chat about faith or other spiritual matters, David or one of his team will be glad to help you.

Union College

Support for our current students is a top priority for Union and takes three main forms – one involving fellow students and the other two, staff.

General Student Council

The overall aim of the General Student Council (GSC) is to improve quality of the life of the college community and all matters that enhance the learning experience for current and future students. 


Like students in other Schools at Queen’s, every undergraduate Theology student is assigned to a personal tutor. Your personal tutor is the member of College Faculty who will meet you at your induction and take a personal interest in you throughout your studies, inviting you for a chat on a regular basis. With or from your tutor you can (for example):

  • Set goals for your academic progress and review your performance
  • Get quick answers to non–module–specific questions relating to your studies
  • Ask for an academic reference when you want to apply for volunteering, further study or employment

Your personal tutor is available during office hours, contactable by email otherwise and always ready to help you if you need something.


Whatever your practical need, a team of College administrative and support staff is there to meet it. You will encounter them:

  • At the welcome desk in the entrance foyer
  • At the reception counter in the main office,
  • By the enquiries counter in the library
  • (for the College custodian) anywhere around the College

In every case, you will find someone friendly, approachable and ready to help answer your question, solve your problem or point to you to the person or service that can.

Dave Gray is the college chaplain and is available to help all members of the community.

Union College seeks to respond positively to the views of students with regard to issues that will improve our students’ experience of studying and learning. Here are some ways in which we have responded to issues raised by our students in the past: click here 

Online student support

While you study with us, you will be well supported by the programme team with a wide variety of additional one–to–one support.

Every student is assigned a personal tutor who will:

  • Guide you through the matriculation process and the course schedule
  • Help you become a confident, active member of the online learning community
  • Help you with any concerns or problems that might affect your studies

Students access materials, discussion forums and a range of learning tools via the Virtual Learning Environment. Our platform is designed to be easy to use and we incorporate familiarisation training into the programme induction. Tech support will be via BibleMesh.

You will also be able to take advantage of digital library access to the e–books in Union’s Gamble Library.
