What our students said about Belfast

Rating: 5/5


Personally the climate was a bit harsh for me because I come from a warm country, but on the whole it is good. It is a very clean country that respects nature, which I find good. I didn't want to go out too much at night. But people are pleasant and remain positive.

The teachers made the lessons very interesting. A lot of group exercises, which help you to socialise with the others. The school is simple and organised. My English improved for sure.
The staff are available at every request. The teachers are good. The school is near the city centre. Some classrooms are a little small.

I liked the method as well as an excellent preparation of our tuition and all the conversations we were encouraged to participate in. There were very pleasant students too.
I'll go on attending International House.

Key Facts about Belfast

Belfast: Belfast is the capital city of Northern Ireland and is in many ways a brand-new city. It suffered greatly during the Troubles of the 70s and 80s and was often shunned by travellers not wanting to visit. Today it is considered one of the safest within the country and now enjoys a sustained period of calm, free from the intense political violence of former years. Belfast remains a centre for industry, as well as the arts, higher education, business, and law, and is a major port with commercial and industrial docks dominating the shores.

According to Mercer 2019, Belfast ranks 64 in terms of quality of life.
