Who Chooses this Program?
Queen’s University Belfast is a great fit for students who want to experience the British Isles in a place that’s slightly off the beaten path. As part of the United Kingdom and as part of Ireland, Northern Ireland is a fascinating place to gain insights into both. Hard-working students are drawn to the wide range of courses at Queen’s, all offered in English, and to the university’s high academic standards. In any study abroad program, students are most successful when they are open-minded and excited about adapting to a new culture and lifestyle.
It was a great experience, I made a lot of connections internationally.
