Belfast is the capital of Northern Ireland and its largest city. Its importance is reflected by two important universities, which collectively attract nearly 50,000 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 19th and 20th centuries, being chosen to construct the RMS Titanic along with 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 UK’s most visited cities with a selection of acclaimed national museums, art galleries and theatres. You can explore the tragic story of the doomed passenger liner at the Titanic Belfast, an acclaimed museum located in the former shipyard where the vessel was built. The city is also an important media hub and has been a site for the filming and production of international film and television shows including HBO’s Game of Thrones series.
If you feel like taking a break from the city, 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 Man, is also possible via regular ferry services.
The oldest university in Belfast is Queen’s University Belfast (QUB), 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.
Belfast is home to a thriving knowledge economy, with particular strengths in the creative industries, cybersecurity and financial technology. Major companies based in the city include Citi, Deloitte and Fujitsu.
