bluejaws asked: Hi! I'm hoping to study at QUB. I was wondering if you could tell me a little about it please if that is okay. Both positives and negatives. I would be studying architecture and traveling from England. Thank You.
Yeah, of course! Good things: QUB is big, so there are a lot of options when it comes to things like clubs and societies, and it’s not too hard to find somewhere you can fit in and meet likeminded people. They also have lots of study abroad/foreign students, so they really know what’s up with credit transfer and placement and things like that, so you won’t have to worry too much when you’re figuring that stuff out. The library is pretty much wonderful, and I am largely impressed with the facilities on campus in general. Belfast is a cool city, with a lot of history, and there’s a lot to do there. I personally am a fan of poetry readings and have found fun places to go for that, and idk if you’re into queer nightlife, but there are a couple cool places to go for that, too.
Not so good things: it’s a big campus, so sometimes you can feel lost in the crowd, socially and within the system. They don’t go out of their way to help you figure out the university’s system, so you need to be able to be on top of that and somewhat self sufficient. It’s a big city, as far as Irish/North Irish cities go, and things are pretty expensive in general. There are ways to save money, but you still end up spending a lot. Politics can get a little uncomfortable for students from abroad, since oppinions are generally still very strong in Belfast and it’s hard to know what to say/not say.
I don’t know anything about the program you’re interested in, but you should talk to tumblr user petuhhhh because he’s doing architecture at QUB!
Hope that helps :)
