“I travelled from Guangdong, China. I took a flight from Hong Kong to London and transferred to Belfast. It took me around 17 hours in total. The experience was so cool and I cannot tell you how excited I was when I first landed in the United Kingdom! It was only a 1 hour flight from London (Heathrow) to Belfast and then 10 minutes by bus/taxi to the City Centre.”Rory Cao, MSc Finance
