I'm from northern Ireland and I'm soon going to be moving to Liverpool to go to university there. Do the English take kindly to us? Is there any bad stigma for being an Northern Irish student in England?

Due to location I'd expect Liverpool to be one of the most popular destinations.
I cant see why there would be any stigma at all for being from NI, especially as you are part of the UK.
Just from reading the links looks like you are going to be hit with a lot of stereotypes, but thats just from kids who have never been away from home, look beyond it and am sure you will be fine plus there will be plenty of you. The only binds are a bit more difficult to get home and you get less money.

Out of interest, but why would you think there would be any stigma?

My family and I had a few bad experiences while in London - I think a few Londoners still thought they where in the 80/90's when we where over but the majority of people either didn't mind/didn't care

Thanks for answering! I feel a bit less worried about moving over now. I had a couple incidents while in London because of being from over here so I'm glad it isn't a universal thing

They are idiots and remember unis are very international places with students from all over the world. I wouldnt be worried plus there are plenty of NI students over there anyway.

Hi,

There is a large Irish community in Liverpool and there are strong connections with Ireland. My boyfriend is from Northern Ireland and went to Liverpool (where we met) he says most of the pubs are Irish!!! He never had any problems while at uni and he stayed after graduation. I have also known a lot of Northern Irish students during my undergrad and postgrad here in Liverpool. Liverpool seems to be a pretty popular choice for Northern Irish students

Hope this helps.

Hi thanks for responding! Good to see Liverpool is an idea place for NI students, it sounds like a completely different atmosphere to how it was for me while in London

Hi there!

Did you end up coming to University of Liverpool to study? Lots of others have replied here but I thought I'd add that I have met loads of Northern Irish students whilst being here and I have always got on with them really well, and generally there is a big community of Northern Irish (and Irish) people in Liverpool (both students and non-students), so overall I'd say its an ideal place for those from N. Ireland and Ireland to come and study!

If you have any further questions about this then ask away below!
