The Russell Group

Proud to stand out from the crowd, we produce Nobel Laureates, leading academics and international leaders and rank consistently as a top UK university

We’re a member of the Russell Group, alongside other UK heavyweights such as Oxford and Cambridge. This reflects our national standing in research and teaching.

Fees and cost of living

We provide a generous system of financial support and work to ensure those who can benefit from a university education, do so

We offer UK and international students significant financial incentives to help manage the cost of university fees and to help reduce the cost of living.

Location and flights

With a modern transport system and two airports, Belfast is less than an hour from London by plane and is accessible directly from other parts of the UK and Europe.

Regular flights and ferries leave for Great Britain from both Belfast and Dublin, so getting home is never a problem if the need arises.

Accommodation

welcoming and friendly

Every student from Great Britain and the Channel Islands is guaranteed accommodation in Elms Village. We call it a village as it is a self-contained community, with everything you need on site; and we’re happy to be ranked in the top 10 for university accommodation (The Telegraph, 2015).
