About Northern Ireland

Northern Ireland is one of the friendliest and unique locations in the world, we have a distinctive accent, rich culture and a long history.

Become an international student here and you’ll soon find that everyone wants to know what ‘the craic’ is. We offer a unique study experience; as an English-speaking destination, we are not saturated with international students, giving you the best opportunity to improve your level of English.

Our landscapes are unspoilt and a lot are undiscovered. As we are a relatively small region, it is easy to travel round – most destinations are within a 2-hour drive.
