Northern Ireland Assembly

The Fulbright Northern Ireland Assembly Award covers the one-year MA Legislative Studies and Practice at Queen's University Belfast.

Queen’s University Belfast was founded by Royal Charter in 1845. The university has strong links with the city, sharing the motto Pro Tanto Quid Retribuamus (What shall we give in return for so much?). Queen's is the UK's ninth oldest university, and ranks among the top 1% of global universities.

Belfast is a compact and growing city which has undergone transformation in recent years. Packed with history, culture, exciting events, great food and shopping, an added bonus is you’ll also find some of the friendliest people you’ll ever meet.

The MA in Legislative Studies and Practice seeks to develop students' knowledge of the historical and political contexts - regional, national and European - in which the Northern Ireland Assembly operates. Students can develop a detailed understanding of legislative practice through work-based learning in the Northern Ireland Assembly, and develop their analytical, communication, employability and research skills.
