Queen's University Belfast (or QUB) is a Russell Group member institution located in Northern Ireland. As a 'red brick' university, Queen's is known as a top representative of UK education world-wide. Interestingly, QUB was one of only eight UK universities to hold a seat in the House of Commons until 1950. It was first established in response to Trinity College Dublin, a university that catered almost exclusively to Anglicans at the time, as a Catholic and Protestant counterpart institution. Since 2006 the university has invested almost £260 million in facility and research development.

The Russell Group member of Ireland and ninth oldest university in the UK.
