Belfast is one of Europe’s most hip and vibrant capital cities, just ask the experts at Lonely Planet who lauded the city for its energy, lively atmosphere, and our ‘dynamic young population that keeps the city on trend.’
The beauty is that it’s all packed into a compact city that’s easy and safe to explore.
Queen’s is not just a launch pad for future careers, but also for adventure and travel. On the western edge of Europe, we're small but well connected.
Our city, Belfast, is compact but big on places to go and things to do. Belfast is within easy access of some of the most spectacular scenery in Ireland and less than an hours flight from London and Edinburgh and only two hours flight from Paris, Amsterdam and Brussels.
“I wanted to study at Queen's as it was part of the Russell Group and regarded as one of the top 1% of universities in the world. On top of that, I wanted to graduate with a degree recognised world-wide to increase my job options in the future.”
