Why Study in Northern Ireland?
Part of the United Kingdom but with a history all its own, Northern Ireland is a fascinating destination. Its urban centers combine cozy pubs and historic sights with trendy restaurants and a cutting-edge arts scene. Meanwhile, the countryside boasts dramatic coastline and picturesque scenery. No two parts of the country are more than a two-hour drive apart, so it’s easy to get out and explore. Students traveling here with World Endeavors will get to sample from a wide variety of academic offerings and join in a vibrant and diverse student culture, and on weekends and holidays it is easy to travel to other parts of the British Isles or take an adventure to continental Europe.
The Value of Studying Abroad
Studying abroad is one of the best choices students can make to deepen their studies and expand their worldview. It’s a chance to learn new ways to think, to meet new friends from around the world, and to be immersed in a new culture or in some cases even a new language. Students who go abroad have access to art, scenery, historical sites, and cultural events that can’t be found at home. No matter what they study, students will find going abroad to be an education in thinking across cultures and adapting to new experiences. And for many, studying abroad is the spark that ignites a lifelong passion for international travel and cultural exploration.
