In this work, we calculate the quantum correction effects on the deflection of light in the spacetime geometry of a quantum improved Kerr black hole pierced by an infinitely long cosmic string. More precisely, we calculate the deflection angle of light by applying the Gauss--Bonnet theorem (GBT) to the osculating optical geometries related to the quantum improved rotating black hole in the weak limit approximation. We find that the deflection angle of light is affected by the quantum effects as well as the global topology due to the presence of the cosmic string. Besides, we have managed to find the same expression for the deflection angle in leading order terms using the geodesic equations.
