GO Universities in Belfast

Universities in Belfast Belfast is home to two prestigious universities: the University of Ulster [map] and Queen's University Belfast [map], which means the city has a thriving student population.

Queen’s University Belfast has a record of academic achievement which stretches back more than 150 years.

Founded by Queen Victoria, the Queen’s University in Ireland, was designed to be a non-denominational alternative to Trinity College Dublin which was controlled by the Anglican Church.

The University was made up of three Queen’s Colleges - in Cork, Galway and Belfast, with Queen’s University Belfast being located at University Road.

Although founded in 1845, it was not until 1849 when the first students entered the new college building, which made up the Belfast campus, designed and built by Charles Lanyon.

Since then, the University estate has grown to more than 300 buildings - many of which are listed for their architectural importance. And evidence of the university's growth can be seen with the number of students the university helps to educate. The first intake of students totalled 90 and today there are around 23,000.

The University of Ulster is a huge university that has campuses and departments in nearly every area of Northern Ireland, including Belfast. Its main base, however, is Coleraine, Co. Londonderry.

The University of Ulster excels in a range of academic subjects but particularly in science and the biochemical science and medicine arena.

This university has a wide intake of students from across the globe who enjoy the cultural diversity of Belfast as well as bringing their own unique influences.
