Student Profile(s)

Febbyandi Pandiangan

I chose Queens University Belfast for many reasons, one of the reasons is that Queen’s is well known as one of the world’s best universities in terms of its research quality and its membership of the Russell Group so Queens has an excellent track record.

I chose the MSc in Advanced Food Safety for a few reasons, the most determining factor was that food safety problems are becoming a serious issue and I would like to improve my knowledge in food safety in order to overcome these problems.

I have really enjoyed living and studying in Belfast for a few reasons, one of them is living cost which is the cheapest when compared to other cities in the UK, further more when I go into the city centre or public places, I just need to walk because Belfast is a relatively compact city. For my friends who have a similar interest to me, particularly in food safety, I highly recommend you to pursue your higher education at Queen’s due to its complete facilities
