I loved my time at Queen’s because it is in my hometown and I enjoyed studying with friends from school as well as making new friends. The History Society at Queen’s was great for socialising and I met many great people through it. The tutors in the History Department were very supportive and they made student life enjoyable and accessible for me.
I loved the Union when I went to Queen’s. The comedy nights were always good fun and I spent many a good hour there. The Union was really my local when I went to Queen’s but now I go wherever the wind takes me in Belfast. There are a few good places around but I think the social scene can still get better.
I am a Primary School teacher and I LOVE it! Its very hard work, but I knew it would be. I enjoy the fact that I have my own class and we have our own routines and jokes. I also love the fact that I have taught them so much! The knowledge and skills that they have gained since September is unbelievable!
I definitely would recommend studying History at Queen’s to anyone. I didn’t even do History for A-Level and I managed to cope with the lectures and tutorials and enjoy it at the same time! There is a good range of modules on offer for different interests so I definitely think it is a good choice! If you’re thinking about it, go for it!
