On Wednesday 29th January, Year 13 Business Studies and Economics students visited Queen’s University for a Taster Day event with Mr. McFarland.

The purpose of the event was to provide students with an opportunity to learn more about the Management School at Queen's. It also provided an opportunity to learn about student life at university to aid UCAS applications.  Students were given the opportunity to speak to staff from the Management School about specific degree programmes that they offer which included:


  • Accounting
  • Actuarial Science and Risk Management
  • Business Management
  • Economics and/or Business Economics
  • Finance
  • International Business with a Modern Language (German, French, Portuguese, Spanish) and (subject to approval Mandarin)


Also, there were several moments were students were able to talk about student life with members of the Management School.

The students had a very informative day, gaining great insight into what is required to become a student at the Queen’s Management School.
