The academics are excellent
I recommend anyone looking to study or work abroad to travel to Belfast and attend Queen’s. The academics are excellent, the people are very welcoming, and you can immerse yourself in a new culture.
Belfast is highly accessible. The public transport is very easy to use and affordable, and many destinations in the city are in walking distance, or a very short bus ride, from Queen’s.
While I learned so much in the classroom, the biggest skills I learned at Queen’s was as an international student. Thanks to my time as an international student at Queen’s I learned to interact with many diverse groups of people. As someone who was not a native in the country, I now know I have the skills to excel in any environment.
My time at Queen’s also prepared me for transition from a small college to a large research university. It also gave me the independence to live and work in a city on my own. I’m currently pursuing my Ph.D. in microbiology and immunology at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, TN.
