AT A GLANCE/LOCATION

As the leading UK university on the Island of Ireland, over 100 students from North America come to Queen’s University Belfast each year to study abroad for a semester or an academic year, taking time out of their home university. Choosing Queen’s allows students to study at a world-class university, make new friends and live alongside local young people from Ireland and the UK for a truly immersive experience in another culture. Study abroad students at Queen’s are taught by world-leading researchers and experts in their field through lectures, tutorials or practical laboratories, in state-of-the-art facilities.

Queen’s University is located in Belfast, which is the capitol of Northern Ireland. As a modern city, Belfast is compact, welcoming, and affordable .Northern Ireland is the happiest place in the UK (Office of Statistics 2015) alongside the most affordable place for students (NatWest Student Living Index 2015). Belfast is best explored on foot or by bike and most places are within walking distance from campus.
