Why Choose Queen's?

Jordanian Society

The Jordanian Students' Society (IZWITNA Queen’s University Belfast) is a platform for Jordanian students and staff to meet, network, and communicate in a warm and welcoming atmosphere.

This society isn't only for Jordanians, it is founded to support them and ease homesickness and cultural shock. But, at the same time, it is an interactive platform for everyone else of any nationality, to socialise, ineract, and communicate with other cultures. We are building a bridge of mutual learning between Jordanian and other nationaliies, Arabs, and non Arabs, and especially the Irish community.

Nour Elsahoryi, 2nd year PhD student, Clinical Nutrition, Jordan

"Queen’s facilities are very attractive and wonderful, with ease of transportation and also simple processes and procedures which are amazing. I have been treated in a very respectful manner and I really enjoy my daily activities. I have never felt as a foreigner, in contrast I always appreciate the international student support at QUB, and the friendly attitude of administrative staff.

I think that the combination of academic excellence with low cost of living and high quality of life are the most special three factors about Queens. It is place where I can study, live and efficiently plan my future, in a quiet, relaxing and family friendly environment."
