What has been the highlight of your time at QMU so far?

The highlight of my experience at QMU so far has been making lifelong friends through involvement with clubs and societies. I am the current Vice President of the Radiography Society and I am enjoying working with the Radiography team to promote membership and encourage communication between all year groups. I feel that being a member of a society has allowed me to make friends from both cohorts of Radiography and other Healthcare Professions and together, share experiences and attend events that will benefit our CPD. Being a member of the Running Club also provides me with a fun way to keep fit and of course, make new friends along the way.

What is the one thing you wish you knew before coming to university at QMU?

I wish I knew just how close the community at QMU really is. Since starting my journey at QMU in 2016, I feel that I have made lifelong friends from all over the world. As an Irish student, I moved into QMU’s Halls of Residence for my first year. I cannot rate the Accommodation and the ResLife programme high enough. My first year on campus felt like a home away from home. I made friends from all over Ireland, the UK and other European countries who I would have never met if I didn’t make the big move to QMU. The different events set up by ResLife in September and throughout the academic year, made it so easy to meet new people and experience different cultures which made settling in a lot easier than I initially expected.

What is your favourite thing about being an ambassador for QMU?

My favourite thing about being an Ambassador for QMU is being able to have a positive influence on someone’s decision when considering studying at QMU. I love being part of a team that is enthusiastic and motivated to offer advice and support to anyone visiting the University on Open Days, Visit Days or indeed at any time of the year should prospective student have any queries about the University or indeed their chosen course. I look forward to working with other Student Ambassadors and meeting the new prospective students over this academic year.
