Each campus has a state-of-the-art learning resource centre and modern teaching facilities. Each also has its own distinctive character deriving from its facilities, subject and research specialties, social and recreational opportunities, cultural and artistic life, and the landscape and community in which it is situated.

There are three regional airports in Northern Ireland, all under an hour’s flight away from most Great Britain and Irish airports. Plenty of international flights too. If you’re in the car, daily ferry services run between Great Britain and Northern Ireland ports.

Living in Belfast
As the capital city of Northern Ireland, Belfast has enjoyed over a decade of rapid economic growth. The city’s skyline has changed significantly in the last few years thanks to massive investment and regeneration. This includes the opening in 2012 of Titanic Belfast, an iconic visitor attraction, as the city which built the ship marks the centenary of its fateful maiden voyage. Political stability has allowed the economy to flourish.  Investors recognize the appeal of the strategic location and excellent infrastructure, with major road, rail, sea and air links to the rest of the UK, the Republic of Ireland and mainland Europe.
