Start your adventure
Wherever you’re from, studying in Northern Ireland will be an unforgettable experience. From breath- taking landscapes and quaint towns and villages, to some of the most cultural and history-rich cities, the variety is remarkable.
You’ll experience a vibrant, eclectic social scene and will be a stone’s throw away from top clubs and hot spots. From traditional Irish music sessions in local pubs, global superstars in concert, up and coming performers in intimate venues or great festivals in wonderful settings – you’ll see it all in Northern Ireland.
Immerse yourself in Northern Ireland life with well-known annual events including St Patrick’s Day, the Cathedral Quarter Arts Festival (Belfast), the famous North West 200 motorcycle race (Portrush/Causeway Coast) and the Banks of the Foyle Halloween Carnival (Derry~Londonderry), as well as Belsonic and Tennent’s Vital music festivals.
Outdoorsy types are spoilt for choice with their very own adventure playground. Paddle along canoe trails, surf or body board on waves coming from the roaring North Atlantic or head to the Mourne Mountains, where you can walk, climb or horse-ride. Whatever your interest or passion, we have it covered.
And what’s more, you can expect the friendliest of welcomes, in typical Northern Ireland fashion. Is it any wonder Northern Ireland was ranked as the happiest place to live in the UK?
