What our students say
“While at Queen’s, I did a summer internship at Bloomberg. I spent five weeks in Beijing as an Analytics intern and five weeks in Shanghai as a Sales intern, which really expanded my exposure to the real financial market and Bloomberg products. After the internship, I was returning to Belfast, when I received a call from them offering me a full-time role. I was so happy that I got my dream job before I graduated.”Rory Cao (China), MSc Finance
“None of the other UK universities I visited offered the same level of facilities and support that is available to students at Queen’s. The friendly and helpful staff made me feel comfortable straight away on arrival.”Saad Almohammed Alrayes (Kuwait), PhD Law
