Belfast is the capital city of Northern Ireland and its largest city. Its importance is reflected by two important universities, which collectively attract over 40,000 domestic and international students.
Belfast has a long and varied history as one of the most important cities in Ireland. It was a pre-eminent site for shipbuilding during much of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, being chosen to construct the RMS Titanic, as well as many other famous vessels. Following the 1921 partitioning of Ireland, Belfast became the administrative centre of Northern Ireland.
Whilst studying a Masters in Belfast you'll live in one of the UKs most visited cities with a selection of acclaimed national museums, art galleries and theatres. The city is also an important media hub and a site for the filming and production of international film and television shows including the HBO Game of Thrones series.
If you feel like taking a break from the city along with your studies you'll find that the region surrounding Belfast features famous landscapes and landmarks including the Giant's Causeway. Convenient travel to and from other parts of the UK, including England and the Isle of Mann, is also possible via regular ferry services.
The oldest university in Belfast is Queens University Belfast, which was established in 1845, but traces its origins to 1810. It is a member of the Russell Group of leading UK research universities and is usually ranked in the top 50 universities in the UK. Belfast is also home to campuses of the University of Ulster.
