Big gratitude to the lecturers and my friends at Queen's University Belfast. I learned many new things and met good friends from all over the world. Having had the chance to study at Queen's did indeed help me to secure an internship at HSBC.

I remember my journey from starting with INTO Queen's until graduating from my bachelor's degree in Finance, it can be challenging but once you reach the end goal, you will find it worthwhile. Be bold and never give up, be your best when studying at Queen's and you never know how much you will gain at the end of the journey. Yoke from Malaysia

The modules were crafted specifically to meet my degree requirements and I am enjoying my degree at university. Progression to Year Two of my degree was not that difficult from the International Year One programme. With the help of amazing professors who are always there to take the time to help you along the way, you can achieve your goals.” Mustafa from Pakistan

Teachers here are so supportive. They don’t just support me with my studies, they also always care about my mental health. Studying with INTO will make my Master’s degree easier, as I can get used to the UK education system. Huaxin from China

"Queen's was the best choice"

"As a graduate of Queen's myself over 20 years ago, I graduated with the same doll my daughter is holding. My son is also a graduate of Queen's. I felt the UK was a good choice for education for my children and Queen's was the best choice as it is a good UK university.

The one year at INTO Queen's helped my children adapt to their environment and prepare for their degree. The scholarship she received was also very helpful in releasing a bit of financial burden. I am very proud of my daughter and what she has achieved". Mr Chan, Hong Kong (SAR)

Mr Chan is parent of alumna Vicky who completed International Foundation in Science and Engineering then progressed to BSc Actuarial Science and Risk Management. Vicky completed a one year internship in Hong Kong (SAR) and is now working as an Actuarial Consultant for RNA Analytics in London.

"Studying abroad at Queen’s is a great investment"

“It is very worth it. All companies worldwide are developing vastly and our children will have to be prepared for the change and the competitiveness in terms of job seeking. We think that by getting better education, taught by experts, as well as learning more about the language will equip our children with the knowledge, the experience that is needed so that they have great and creative minds.

By enrolling our kids at Queen’s University Belfast, which has great history and reputation, they can interact and learn with international friends from all around the world which we think is very important. Studying abroad at Queen’s is a great investment and will give them a grasp in facing the world’s future development.” 

Mr Martono from Indonesia, is the proud father of sisters Fannya and Ferensky Sandjaja.

Fennya is currently at INTO Queen's and Ferensky is at Queen's.
