Global Bachelor's Belfast Semester

Global Bachelor's Belfast Semester

Semester in Belfast

The GW Global Bachelor's Belfast Semester is a core experience within the GW Global Bachelor's Program. Global Bachelor's students will find themselves in an exciting and challenging program, studying alongside Northern Irish and international students. All program participants take the fall semester of their sophomore year at Queen’s University in Belfast (QUB), Northern Ireland. Queen’s is a world-class institution which prepares students for leadership and citizenship in a global society. In addition to the 5-credit core course, PSTD 3191, students will choose two 5-credit elective courses. Students live on campus in dorms, centrally located in Belfast.

After arrival in Belfast, students will have the opportunity for site visits in the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland. In Belfast, students will visit museums, markets, and public spaces and learn about the peace and reconciliation in a Northern Irish context. Staff at QUB facilitate housing support and provide opportunities to meet local and international students inside and outside of the classroom. The Global Bachelor's Program balances the students’ experience of a new life in Northern Ireland with the familiarity of a GW community.
