Study Tour 2019

Fully booked - please contact W100 to be added to the waiting list

Following the conference in Manchester, a group of W100 members will head across to Belfast for a couple of days at Queen's University Belfast - a prestigious Russell Group UK university which is building a global reputation.

Queen’s was judged the leading global online brand in last year’s World 100 Brand Snapshot research project.  The team responsible for the brand review that drove this achievement will give us an insight into what informed their decisions and to tell us more about how they developed Global Research Institutes/Pioneer Research Programmes to enhance their reputation. 

We will also visit a number of leading academic centres at Queen's covering a range of topics from cell biology to global peace, and the latest in communication technology.

Then finally, a chance to explore historic Belfast, lauded by Lonely Planet for its energy and lively atmosphere. We will visit the Titanic Visitor Attraction and consider the analogy of the vast amounts of unseen work that go into improving a university’s reputation beneath the visible tip of the iceberg!

We will stay at the newly built Grand Central Hotel with its observatory overlooking the city’s rooftops.
