Add an International Dimension to your Queen's Experience
Internationalising your Queen’s experience can be a great way of developing personal and employability skills, experiencing exciting new cultures, gaining a more global outlook and perspective, as well as – and definitely not to be forgotten – an opportunity to meet new friends and have fun.
Queen’s is a first class university and offers many opportunities to add value to your time here. Every year over 600 Queen’s students take the opportunity to go outside Northern Ireland to study or gain work-related experience – why not be one of them? Even if your degree doesn’t offer the opportunity to study or work abroad there are still loads of opportunities whatever your level and degree discipline. You can go abroad for the summer, for a semester or for a whole year – the choice is yours.
Do yourself a favour, take some time out and explore all the exciting options open to you – you could be starting on the road to a life-changing experience that will:
- Impact in a highly positive way on your Queen’s experience
- Add real value to your future career plans
- Develop self reliance skills
Here are just some of the options open to you, if you want to consider your options further inquire in your School or talk to your Careers Adviser
