Queen's welcomes the 2018 NAFA UK Study Tour

Queen's University today (Friday, 15 June) welcomed the National Association of Fellowship Advisors (NAFA) on their Study Tour of the UK.

The delegation of academics and university representatives from 36 US institutions – including Stanford University, University of Michigan, University of Connecticut, Duke University, Penn State University, Fordham University and Yale University, to name just a few – visited Queen's as part of their wider tour of UK institutions.

During their visit, the group took in a campus tour of the Lanyon building, The Graduate School, Computer Science Building and Gibson Institute, and ended with a city tour of Belfast. They also met with representatives from the University's senior management team and visited one of Queen's Global Research Institutes (GRIs), the Senator George J. Mitchell Institute for Global Peace, Security and Justice.

Heather Taylor, Head of International Markets (Acting) at Queen's said:

"We are delighted to welcome the NAFA group back to Queen's as part of their UK Study Tour. We look forward to working with each of the institutions involved in the visit and forming new partnerships and collaborations in the future."
