The Minister has congratulated QUB and Belfast Met on receiving Queen's Anniversary Prizes.
"As Minister with responsibility for both the further and higher education sectors, I congratulate Queen’s University and Belfast Met on each receiving the prestigious Queen’s Anniversary Prize.
"Both institutions deliver high quality teaching and training opportunities to people in a wide range of areas, both academic and vocational, and nurture an abundance of expertise, knowledge and skills among their students and staff.
"These awards recognise both the work by Queen’s in shared education, and Belfast Met’s role as a Digital IT Hub, and are testament to the contribution the institutions make not only to the local economy, but also to wider society.
"Staff and students can be rightly proud of these awards."
