It was perfect! Throughout the past month, I've had a chance to learn about a range of different topics related to education and Northern Ireland. Other than the fantastic classes, there were many field trips that provided some first-hand experience and opportunities to discuss with principals, students and politicians alike. Expect to learn about the history and conflicts of Northern Ireland, their educational system, current research and much more! Also, be ready to meet incredible classmates, teachers and staff. I'm really glad to have received Santander's scholarship, which made this whole experience possible. I can't wait to apply what I've learned and hope I can be back to Queen's soon.

The Education for Transformation Summer Course at Queen's University Belfast was an incredible experience. I learned about the history of the country, the troubles they had, the division between Catholics and Protestants, how the educational system is, and so many other things. I am really happy that I received a Santander scholarship and had the opportunity to study during 4 weeks about education in Northern Ireland. Now I understand a lot more about this divided society, and can compare it with my country. Thank you very much for this opportunity. I hope to have the chance to come back and keep my studies.

How can this program be improved?
I believe it would be better to have more discussion panels with students, teachers and principals.

Belfast is a great city and Queen's University a site to behold. You are surrounded by sites long told in song, story, film, and history. Every day was inspiring. Have rainwear, and plan to spend some time after the program just exploring the city. I think one could live in Belfast a full year without getting to all there is to do & see in the city, never mind the outskirts! I hope to return very soon.

How can this program be improved?
Better communication access. Without an international cell phone contract, one is cut off in the dorms. No phones there. Have groups set up email or cell communication first day so that there can be more spontaneous group event planning & communication.

This course was a great experience and would definitely recommend it to anyone thinking of going.
The lecturers were very knowledgeable and took us to cultural events that we might not have gone to otherwise like the bonfires and the marches on the Twelfth.
Staying in Belfast means that you can clearly see the impact of the Troubles and it was really interesting to meet people who were involved in the conflict. There’s a lot to do in the city and the trips to different parts of Northern Ireland are excellent.
The best part about this course was meeting so many amazing people. The social activities that were planned by the staff and PhD students were really fun and meant that it was easy to get to know people.
I loved my time in Belfast and am so glad that I did this course.

I really enjoyed the whole experience. The academics were interesting and worthwhile. They related well to the activities and outings we did as a group. I really had a chance to learn and meet wonderful new people! The outings we went on will remain some of my favorite memories and seeing Northern Ireland was amazing. I highly recommend this program for anyone who wants to expand their knowledge of politics and learn about issues facing other countries. It was completely worth every second.
