Welcome to your February Newsletter. The month, we want to help you #ExperienceMore. Whether it’s through volunteering, summer jobs, internships, placements or through a period of work or study abroad, the work-related experience you build up during your time at Queen’s can help you stand out when it comes to applying for graduate roles.
Discover how you can build your CV in a meaningful and rewarding way at the Work Experience and Placement Fair on 24 February.

Final years: The National Student Survey is open.
The NSS gives you the opportunity to say what you think about your course at Queen’s. It allows you to say both what you liked and what you think could be improved.
Your feedback will be used to help those considering higher education to make decisions about where and what to study. Queen’s will also use this information to make real changes to the student experience. You will also be entered into a draw to win one of five £100 high street shopping vouchers.
Meanwhile, all non-final year undergrads can take part in the Student Experience Survey. You could win one of eight £25 shopping vouchers for completing the survey.
