Program Description

This program allows US students to study at participating BEI schools in Northern Ireland. There are about 50 places available each year to students at Presbyterian colleges.

Students may choose one of the following universities at which to study for the duration of their program:

Belfast Metropolitan College
Queens University
St. Mary’s University College
Stranmillis University College
University of Ulster

Location, academic programs, resources available for student use, and areas of study vary depending on the university.

Program in Brief
Please note that you must be either a sophomore or a junior and have a 3.2 GPA in order to participate in the program.

Final decisions are made by the individual universities and are based on the student’s transcript, recommendation letters, and a 500-word essay.

“The selection committee will consider at a student's field of study to see if there are matching courses in Northern Ireland. Students who cannot advance their studies in a chosen field or who have not completed courses in their major will not be accepted. The committee will also consider a student's extra-curricular activities, especially those that relate to the student's field of study.”

There is a mandatory set of pre-departure orientations at PC for all students planning to participate in the program.

Housing and Meals
“Students are responsible for housing, food, travel, books and other living expenses, some of which may be covered by financial aid.”
