Incredible experience

10/10

Belfast is a great city and Queen's University a site to behold. You are surrounded by sites long told in song, story, film, and history. Every day was inspiring. Have rainwear, and plan to spend some time after the program just exploring the city. I think one could live in Belfast a full year without getting to all there is to do & see in the city, never mind the outskirts! I hope to return very soon.

How can this program be improved?

Better communication access. Without an international cell phone contract, one is cut off in the dorms. No phones there. Have groups set up email or cell communication first day so that there can be more spontaneous group event planning & communication.

Fantastic Study Abroad Experience

10/10

This course was a great experience and would definitely recommend it to anyone thinking of going.
The lecturers were very knowledgeable and took us to cultural events that we might not have gone to otherwise like the bonfires and the marches on the Twelfth.
Staying in Belfast means that you can clearly see the impact of the Troubles and it was really interesting to meet people who were involved in the conflict. There’s a lot to do in the city and the trips to different parts of Northern Ireland are excellent.
The best part about this course was meeting so many amazing people. The social activities that were planned by the staff and PhD students were really fun and meant that it was easy to get to know people.
I loved my time in Belfast and am so glad that I did this course.

Loved it

10/10

I really enjoyed the whole experience. The academics were interesting and worthwhile. They related well to the activities and outings we did as a group. I really had a chance to learn and meet wonderful new people! The outings we went on will remain some of my favorite memories and seeing Northern Ireland was amazing. I highly recommend this program for anyone who wants to expand their knowledge of politics and learn about issues facing other countries. It was completely worth every second.

best experience

10/10

I am so glad to have chosen this program and the memories I got from it. the only thing I did not like is that it is to short (3 week) why not 5?. I've met some of the best people you could wish for I wouldn't change this experience for any other summer abroad. the people I met there where amazing and made the trip even better. lectures where fun as well as the trips to the different parts of Northern Ireland.

How can this program be improved?

make it longer.

Very good and interesting program!

10/10

It was very good and interesting program. the studies were very useful, the people were great and full experience was amazing.

Dominic is one of a kind. and the lectures were very interesting.

The field trips were very good and the fun and cultural parts were great.

From a perspective of an Israeli, I think there is a place to go deeper with the Israeli - Palestinian conflict, and would love to help with it.
