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."
