Stories from Abroad:

Genevieve Herbert - Belfast, Northern Ireland


My semester in Belfast has certainly been the most enjoyable time of my academic career. The experience of taking graduate courses at Queen’s University Belfast was invigorating and refreshed my interest in my research topic. I made a great group of friends and we still regularly communicate and make plans to visit each other. I am really grateful for the immersive experience and I think without a doubt that my research benefited from my time abroad. The chance to study abroad was a strong draw for this program for me and I am so thankful that I was able to study in Belfast.
