Queen’s Social Charter Podcast – Episode 1: Shared Education

Queen’s University’s Social Charter, launched in November 2017, shines a light on the significant contribution made by our students and staff and the positive impact we have on our society.

‘The Charter’, our podcast series, features interviews with some of those students and staff, and digs into some of the projects making a great contribution to our communities here at home and farther afield.


Shared Education at Queen’s

In February 2020, a team from Queen’s University Belfast made their way to Buckingham Palace to collect an  award – the prestigious Queen’s Anniversary Prize – for their work on Shared Education.

The Prize was a recognition of the excellence, innovation and public benefit of their long years of work in bringing children (and extended communities) together, for all their differences, in a traditionally divided education system.
