"Belfast has a very homely feel: it’s important to feel safe when moving away from home.
I felt that Queen’s would look after me as a student and despite being only at the start of my second semester I feel very much part of a community."
"I find my course interesting and intellectually stimulating. In particular I enjoy the lectures by people who are passionate about their subject.
I’ve found all my lecturers to be very approachable and more than willing to help with anything."
I absolutely love living in Belfast. Lecturers and staff met me before my course began to give me tours of the campus and answer any questions I had. I felt comfortable and settled very quickly. Shannan Healy, North Carolina, USA

"Queen’s was absolutely unforgettable for me. I loved every minute of it.
It has played a huge part in shaping who I am. I have made friends for life and would give anything to relive the experience! I have made memories that will stay with me forever and Queen’s will always hold a special place in my heart."
"The Quad and the Lanyon Building were very beautiful and I felt lucky to be able to walk through it and feel at home.
Elms Village is also a very vibrant, social community where it has been very easy to meet all sorts of people."
As a mature student I was concerned about fitting in and finding friends but the transition from college has been an enjoyable one. The support from staff and fellow students has really added to my experience. Ashleigh McElreavey

"As well as wanting to attend a university that would give me a great education and a fantastic academic experience,
it was important to me to sample a lot of different experiences that I would never have otherwise thought of trying."
"What impressed me most was the commitment of staff to help me out by all means. I enjoy the interactive discussions which are really only possible in an all-inclusive environment.
Belfast is wonderful - accommodating, open and friendly. I enjoy my visits to the city centre and I love walking around on cool evenings, enjoying the fresh air."
