Two of the highlights of my time at Queen Mary were being able to attend a talk by Bill Gates at the University and, through the Physics and Astronomy Society (PsiStar), having the opportunity to visit the European Space Agency Research and Technology Centre in the Netherlands, which was very inspiring!
