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.”
