The happy scholarship winners during their 4 week stay in Northern Ireland and International House Belfast and INTO at Queen’s University Belfast.
Winners Ana Victoria Pimentel, Carla Menezes, Andressa Ribeiro and Agata Kissa studied in Belfast learning English through a four-week scholarship provided through English UK with support from Invest NI and The British Council. According to Carla Menezes, the experience is mutually beneficial.
“Before this scholarship I hadn’t even heard of Belfast, let alone thought about coming here, but I’m so glad I did. Apart from improving my English skills I’ve also met some of the friendliest people and learnt about an entirely new culture — I really don’t want to go home!”
