You'll find a wide variety of high-quality course offerings in the humanities, business and management, engineering, information technology, life and health sciences, and social sciences. If you want to take particular advantage of your time spent in Northern Ireland, the University offers a large number of engaging courses in Irish history, politics, language, and literature. Like many North American students, you may find the University's offerings in peace and conflict studies to be particularly compelling.
The University's comprehensive academic offerings and variety of four campus locations are popular among local students, though not as well known to those from North America. Your distinctness as a North American student will be valued and welcomed, and you'll spend many memorable hours gaining insight into the rich cultural tapestry of Northern Ireland's dual traditions-Irish and British, Catholic and Protestant, Gaelic and English. You can choose to study at any one of the University's four campuses. Each campus will give you the flexibility to choose courses from any department that interests you; however, to maximize your study time and social opportunities, you need to pursue all of your coursework on one campus only. Most classes are taught in a lecture format, with an emphasis on supplemental tutorial sessions. For a full-time course load, you can expect to take about three courses per semester or term.
An Arcadia program isn't just about enrolling you in an overseas institution, however. It's about all of the services that we provide. We encourage you to contact your program manager for advice on the application process, choosing courses, or simply what you should pack. Once you arrive in Ireland, our staff will lead an orientation program in Belfast that will introduce you to the culture, history and politics of Ireland as well as preparing you for the academic challenges of studying in a different educational system.
