Overall Experience
A student studying abroad with Arcadia: Belfast - Queens University Belfast
I am now an independent person. I can make and keep a budget, prioritize my work and fun, make lasting friendships, travel alone, and just generally be a real adult. I even know how to cook now! If you are nervous about having to become an Adult, force yourself to by going abroad! It worked for me, so it'll probably work for... - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I met so many amazing people while abroad whom I will never forget. These people encouraged me to be myself, and loved me unconditionally for who I was. I would go back in a heartbeat, and I loved every minute of my time abroad! - Trinity University View Entire Review
Everything was great, the weekend trip was a bit rushed, but I was living with some kids from the Butler program and they got to do some crazy stuff like bungy-jumping. It would have been cool if they set up flights to and from Ireland for us. - University of Hartford View Entire Review
I got to experience a new culture for a few months. I met my now girlfriend abroad. I learned a lot about her culture as well. Overall it was a very worthwhile experience - Brandeis University View Entire Review

Located in a modern, affordable, capital city in one of the safest regions in the UK, Queen’s is a world-class academic institution with a history that goes back to the mid-nineteenth century. It is well-known for academic and research excellence, and combines the best elements of tradition and progressive thinking, with a particular strength in courses examining the politics of divided societies.

The campus is in the social and cultural heart of the city, where there are cafes, museums, parks, and nightlife within easy reach of campus. The region in which Belfast  is located is home to breathtaking scenery, where students enjoy adventure sports and communing with the natural world. From hiking to surfing to dolphin-watching and moonlight kayaking, with nearby mountains, valleys, and glens to discover -- there is something for everyone. Events, festivals, and a lively arts scene, along with a thriving food culture and friendly locals, make it fun to be out and about, exploring and getting to know your new home.
