Most helpful review

As a master's student, I can't recommend it enough. From mind-blowing cultural events to top-notch staff and facilities, every day is an adventure. The student union – it's like the heart of all the fun and support you could ever need. Imagine a place where you can have a blast while also getting career guidance. I only wish I'd started my journey here earlier.

Much more interested in spending your tuition fees on pointless new buildings (Such as demolishing and replacing the SU which was already very new and did not need changing) than actually providing a service to students. My course fees separate to tuition fees came to over £1000 a year including compulsory trips abroad and essential equipment and software which the university does not provide.

Amazing library and facilities within my school, staff are so friendly across campus and there’s some great support at the student guidance centre. Regular emails from the career service so there’s plenty of opportunities for placements etc. Having an amazing time at Queen’s so far and would definitely recommend to everyone, especially as a GB student wanting to move further from home and go somewhere a little different! :)

The majority of the lecturers are excellent bar a couple. Was part of the school of HAPP generally very high quality excluding the media modules which just fall of a cliff. The administration is generally poor and disruptive. Waste a lot of time went you need forms signed, disrupt classes with class reviews and make serious clerical errors like saying I had a 2:2 instead of the actual 2:1 I received. Thankfully this was cleared up quickly but sums up the skill of the admin. Overall a great university and the lecturers are always willing to help and provide an excellent course despite the administrations best efforts.

The course content was not as advertised, facilities are not as advertised, equipment subpar, teaching quality subpar. I could have learnt everything I have done in two years on an online short course. Waste of time and money. Thanks.

The student guidance centre is always helpful, most notably when I needed a CV check. Depending on the school you are enrolled at within the university will decide who checks your CV as part of an appointment based system. This means you CV is checked by someone who knows the field of expertise you wish to pursue. This was helpful when I needed a CV for summer studentships within the university. The Student Union activitys are always very well organised by a student elected committee. They are always well advertised on social media and around the entire campus. This ensures students are well aware of extracurricular events.

I'm an international student and I'm studying law here at Queen's. Probably the best thing about studying law at QuB is learning both England and the NI's legal rules. I can't recommend enough, happy to be here.
