Among the world’s top universities, Queen’s University Belfast is the ninth oldest university in the UK and considered one of the most beautiful. Its location in Northern Ireland in the UK offers a unique blend of both British and Irish cultures, a broad choice of courses to study and the foundation of a memorable study abroad experience.
