Cost of Living
I was pleasantly surprised by the cost of living in Belfast. Elms, where most of the first years stay, is very cheap in comparison to other UK universities accommodation. You can feed yourself for very little which means you've more money to do other things in Belfast. Jacob Robinson, Newcastle
