Classes follow a communicative approach, focusing on authentic language that students can use outside the classroom. Each week is theme-based to ensure consistency and continuity and to give students the opportunity to see new language in context. Themes (for example, ‘You and the Environment’, ‘Social Networking’, ‘We Are All Scientists’) are selected to appeal to the students’ interests and to provide engaging classes that increase motivation. Each week culminates in student presentations based on that week’s theme.

Because the university is based in the centre of Belfast, there are many great sights to see within a short distance of the campus. Learn about the history and culture of Belfast and see the main visitor attractions, such as The Titanic Experience, Ulster Folk and Transport Museum, W5 Interactive Science Museum, Belfast Castle and Cave Hill. QUB’s Physical Education Centre, located in the Botanic Gardens, is one of the finest sports facilities in Ireland. Varied sports activities are included in the programme.

If a transfer is needed before 08.00 or after 22.00 (arrival time at the airport), then the supplement is applied.
