Program Overview

Program Description:

Belfast has been growing in popularity as a travel destination in the last few years, developing a vibrant restaurant scene, award-winning architecture, and a new cosmopolitanism. However, most residents still prefer discussing politics over their famous fried breakfasts. The friendliness of the people is what’s most appealing in this small and very walkable city, from smiling servers to talkative bartenders to helpful strangers on the street. Your time in Belfast will allow you to explore this hidden gem to its fullest - and perhaps run into a cast member from Game of Thrones while you’re at it! 

Setting Description:
Belfast is an extremely easy city to get around, so you will have access to everything while staying in university accommodation, a short walk from campus. Belfast is more affordable than every other major student city in the UK; in fact it's almost 50% cheaper than London. With less money spent on rent, amenities, and food, you'll have more left over to experience Belfast's amazing culture. With so much culture at your fingertips, you’ll never be at a loss for something to do. The Belfast’s Botanic Gardens, 28 acres of green lawns and trees, is right off campus, or you can explore Belfast’s trendiest neighborhood, the Cathedral Quarter. Its cobbled streets are now home to bustling restaurants, pubs, and arts venues. Being by the ocean and lush countryside will fill up your weekends as you take in everything this part of the island nation has to offer.
