How expensive is it and how do I get there?
Northern Ireland has the lowest cost of student living in the UK, so you’ll pay less for rent, travel and going out.

If you are the kind of person who is good with numbers and logic but also likes to be creative, then this is the course for you". Rebekah Kane, BSc Computer Science/Software Engineering
