    Hi guys, I'd just like to hear from anyone studying at these three universities as my boyfriend and I both have offers from them - we're just not really sure what's best.

    I'm hopefully studying Physics and Astronomy, while he wants to do History (with Philosophy at Belfast.)

    I doubt it makes much difference but I'm from Ireland and he's from Wales so culture shock from moving away isn't really a problem socially. It's just the unis themselves to worry over.

    Ah, anyway. If you study here (even if not these subjects) please help us. Thank you 😊

    Hey !

    I went to Queen's University Belfast last year (1y program to improve my english language haha) and my boyfriend is still studying architecture over there.
    I think the facilities are great, especially for sciences (brand new buildings!!), the library is beautiful and the accommodation is fairly new and decent (especially if you get a premium room, my boyfriend had one of these and I was really jealous).
    There is a nice atmosphere, the students and the staff were really friendly.

    However, I didn't like the city that much, it's quite small and you can get bored quite easily (in my opinion, some people just love it).
    You always go to the same 3 clubs, and there's no one in the streets after 8pm. The weather is quite bad as well but like in most places in the UK haha

    Loads of international students though, which is a great thing in my opinion

    Hope it helped !

    Haha no, somewhere small is lovely actually. I grew up in Glendaloch (one of the smaller parts of Ireland) so I'm more than used to it That said are people okay with multiculturalism? Slightly afraid being from the other half of Ireland it could be a little tricky.

    Which hall would you recommend? ^^
