MSc in Mechanical Engineering with Management - Batch of 2022
4.1
A course in QUB is a real time challenge and if you are really passionate about the subject.
Tips: I did get a real good experience out of my degree, not only academically but I did grow a lot in the real world understanding the job prospects and real-world skill set. I did get a scholarship based on my undergrad score in India at the time in 2020 but unsure today how the scholarships are awarded. I loved this large university in a small country.
Likes (Safety): Crime rate is the lowest and you feel safe to walk at any place even if it is dark and isolated in a remote area because the response rate for emergency services is really quick. I had an instance where police had to issue a fine to us as we broke a Covid house restriction but that's a pretty small fine though.
Dislikes (Indian Food): We don't find many Indian/Bangladeshi/Pakistani Restaurants in Belfast compared to other cities in the UK or Ireland as Northern Ireland has transportation challenges, I did cook mostly on my own. An average Indian dinner would cost an individual nearly 315-320.

MSc Business Analytics - Batch of 2023
3.4
This place will help you transform to a stronger version.
Tips: After joining the college there will be huge cultural shift and cultural shocks. Develop a mindset to embrace the culture open heartedly. There will be a scholarship depending on your merit and they deduct it from total fees. I am partially satisfied with university, course, and country. Because the course was not entirely taught as promised for non technical students and they expected us to learn by ourselves and complete the course. This was a huge blow to non technical students.
Likes (Part time work): There are plenty of part time jobs on campus and around the campus. It's hard to manage studies and jobs at the same time but increases time management skills. Basic pay for all jobs. You need to manage the time schedules for job and academic works. If you are unable to manage, there are support systems to help you complete academic work from university.
Dislikes (Permanent Immigration): Due to change of rules, there is almost no chance of getting permanent settlement. An international student is given only a last priority. It is absolutely tough to compete with the native here for job hunting. If given a chance, I would definitely opt for permanent settlement.

MSc Accounting and Finance - Batch of 2023

The university offers many opportunities to grow.
Tips: Be ready to take on any opportunities that come. Be sure to study well, as it is not that hard to pass unless you put in the required effort. And also make sure to have fun too as the city has a lot of things to offer. The college also has a lot of programmes that are beneficial to students, so make sure to check them out.
Likes (Value for money): University has nice affiliation and the modules are relevant and well thought. All professors are well educated and helpful. The course also has a lot of assignments that are relevant to the job market and various subject expertise, but scoring in assignments also depends on the professor and his views.
Dislikes (Permanent Immigration): You have a chance to get PSW after you study for 2 more years. I wouldn't personally immigrate here but it does offer scope if you want to. Everything depends on the job you get, and the Visa sponsorship that your job might offer. It takes 5 years of sponsored visa to get permanent residence.

Leaving your comfort zone, yet finding comfort.
Tips: After taking admission in QUB, I haven’t had any problem and being in Belfast is the best kickstart for any student to start their new journey in the UK, as everything comes around to your budget. The professors interact with the students very well and they do not hesitate to clear the doubts. The college lectures are all offline but you do get study material online and research papers that help us in our assignment and exam preparation. There is a 3 floor library and a Riddel hall where you can do group study by booking the room. A graduate school is there as well which is beautiful and peaceful to study alone. The university has a sports centre including sports like private classes for yoga, aqua jogging, Pilates or dance, swimming, badminton, gym, rock climbing and much more. The university offers various clubs to join such as Tai Jutsu, badminton club, caving club, skydiving club, dance club for especially for south Asian students, etc. After completing the course, Queens has their app called ‘Simplicity’ where you can see which companies are hiring and there are graduate programs as well. Internships are also available which you can do only after you are done with your graduation, since it requires 40 hours of work every week and as a student, we are allowed only 20 hours. The Queen’s itself has cafes and student’s union where you can work part-time. QUB also comes under the Russell Group which is great for your CV. As a student, everyone faces some or the other problem, but you have professors to give you advice and the university also offers support for the student’s well-being. I realize that I took the right decision to choose QUB and I would recommend it to others as well but also, an honest suggestion would be getting into QUB in the September intake is preferable than the January intake.
