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.

MSc Planning and Development - Batch of 2022
PlacementsInfrastructureFacultyCrowd & Campus LifeValue for Money
Low tuition fee and good academic support
Tips: It belongs to the prestigious Russell group of Universities. Students should learn some skills back from their home country that would help them to maneuver through their academic and social life. Also, have their CV tailored as per the UK requirements
Likes (Safety): Safety depends on the area of residence and the area of travel. I was fortunate to live in student accommodation at ulster University and Queen's University during my course but in the last two months, I will be shifting outside the campus accommodation.
Dislikes (Quality of faculty): In my second semester almost there were two months of academic strike that caused concern but later was resolved. Not all faculties are full time working so you have to take appointments. The online library & extra activities help for academic and job purposes.

PlacementsInfrastructureFacultyCrowd & Campus LifeValue for Money
Best postgraduate experience at this university.
Tips: Get ready to take up academics seriously with the programs offered to be research intensive in terms of assignments and exams. Engaging in several university clubs and events will provide ample exposure to leadership and is also fun. Learn a thing or two about Irish culture.
Likes (Internships): Belfast is a booming city with a lot of upcoming business opportunities. Local companies hire interns and part time employees. Plenty of summer internships are available with decent pay. Regular effort in applying for internships is required to reach out to employers but the hiring process is fair and square.
Dislikes (Indian Food): There are limited options for Indian cuisine and can often be pricey. Having local food is quite feasible. Being a vegetarian is a little difficult but can work with a lot of recent vegan options popping up in different parts of Belfast. Buying at a local grocery and cooking can prove advantageous.

Good university, very cheap living cost and good for IT students
Tips: The university is very friendly with people and you can have many different clubs to join. From all other universities in UK, this is the cheapest with living rates. There is a variety of different food options however the city isn't as lively as London or Dublin so just make sure you know it'll get a bit quiet at times.
Likes (Indian Food): There are many Indian restaurants around here, like at least 4 at minimum. You can easily order food from delivery or visit them. Also, there are pretty decent Indian shops around where you can buy all the items from India, all original. They're pretty good and you can find almost anything you need.
Dislikes (Part time work): Part time work personally for me has been a bit hard to find but others around me have gotten part-time work pretty easily. I tried applying for part-time jobs in restaurants and other jobs such as receptionist but I never got a response back from anywhere.
