Queen’s University Belfast
China Medical University - The Queen’s University of Belfast Joint College (CQC)
School of Pharmacy
Queen’s University Belfast is one of the leading universities in the UK and Ireland, with a distinguished heritage and history. With over 24,000 students, 3,700 staff and an annual turnover of some £300m, Queen’s University Belfast plays a unique leadership role in Northern Ireland. As a member of the Russell Group of UK research-intensive universities, Queen’s University Belfast combines excellence in research and education with a student centred ethos.
The China Medical University-The Queen’s University of Belfast Joint College (CQC) was established in the People’s Republic of China (PRC) through a long-standing friendship between Queen’s School of Pharmacy and the China Medical University (CMU), one of the foremost medical universities in China. CQC is a College that has the full approval from the China Ministry of Education (MoE) and was created in accord with the MoE ‘Cooperation in Running Schools’ (CIRS) Regulations.
The first students graduated from CQC in July 2018, with many opportunities thereafter for CQC graduates to enter onto postgraduate courses at Queen’s Schools in Belfast. Queen’s also operate student exchange programmes in the student’s final year in CQC so that our students in Shenyang gain the full Queen’s experience.
In addition, CQC is an exciting and highly active centre of research for Queen’s within China. CMU has a vibrant research community and Queen’s staff are already collaborating and publishing in a number of areas within the health sciences. It is anticipated that this relationship will be further strengthened, allowing Queen’s to further improve their international links, and to continue with a programme of world-leading, life-saving research.
