Belfast Metropolitan College


Belfast Metropolitan College is a further and higher education institution in Belfast, Northern Ireland. The college offers both vocational education and academic qualifications. With over 50,000 enrolments and an annual budget in the region of £45 million, it is Northern Ireland's largest college.

It was created in 2007 by the merger of the Belfast Institute of Further and Higher Education (BIFHE) (formerly the Belfast Technical College, Rupert Stanley and The College of Business Studies) and Castlereagh College.

The college encompasses a number of different campuses around the city. The largest are the Millfield Campus, Castlereagh campus and Titanic Quarter building which opened in September 2011 and resulted in the closure of the Brunswick Street and the College Square East campuses. Although some support staff remained based in College Square they were moved out by winter 2013 with the building being sold. College Square East was formally known colloquially as the 'Black Man Tech'. This is because of the statue of Dr Henry Cooke, a leading 19th century Presbyterian, which stands outside the building. The statue of Cooke is not marble, but copper, like most other architecture around the city of Belfast around the same time. Due to exposure to the elements, most of these statues and domes around the city have oxidised, producing a green colour of copper oxide, especially noticeable on the nearby City Hall.

Millfield specialises in sports and social sciences. This campus offers courses from GCSE level to GNVQ and undergraduate courses. Castlereagh campus ( formerly Castlereagh college) specialises in Art and Design, Media and Business. The college also has campuses in Brunswick Street, Whiterock and Tower Street.

Past students include newsreader John Irvine, footballer Danny Blanchflower, actor Colin Morgan and TV personality Eamonn Holmes, Joseph Tomelty Northern Irish character actor and playwright, and television presenter and actor Aidan Browne.

Université Heriot-Watt

L'université Heriot-Watt d'Édimbourg (Écosse), est la huitième plus vieille université du Royaume-Uni. Son nom fait référence à George Heriot, ministre des Finances du roi Jacques VI d'Écosse au XVIe siècle, ainsi qu'à James Watt, célèbre inventeur du XVIIIe siècle. Depuis le 1er février 2006, la neurologue Susan Greenfield en est le Chancellor (chancelier) confirmant par là une réelle tradition féministe. En effet, les femmes furent admises à Heriot-Watt dès 1869, avec plus de 20 ans d'avance sur les autres universités.

L'université Heriot-Watt est actuellement partagée entre quatre campus. Le campus principal est à Riccarton, un peu en dehors de l'agglomération d'Édimbourg. Les autres campus sont à Galashiels (Scottish Borders), à Stromness (Orcades) et à Dubaï (Dubai Academic City).

L'université accueille chaque année près de 17700 étudiants (environ 7000 à Riccarton) dont moins de la moitié sont écossais. En effet, plus de 11 000 étudiants, provenant de quelque 150 pays, sont en programme international. D'ailleurs, l'université Heriot-Watt est surtout réputée pour sa Business School et son Institute of Petroleum Engineering, deux départements qui dispensent des formations résolument ouvertes à l'international. Par ailleurs, le campus de Riccarton, particulièrement bien équipé en installations sportives, accueille le centre d'entrainement et de formation de l'équipe de football professionnelle des Heart of Midlothian qui évolue en première division écossaise.

The Watt Club a récemment célébré son 150e anniversaire, ce qui en fait la plus vieille association d'anciens élèves au Royaume-Uni.

Université d'Oxford


L’université d'Oxford est la plus ancienne université britannique. La date de sa fondation n’est pas connue précisément. Les traces les plus anciennes d’une activité d’enseignement à Oxford datent de 1116 environ avec l’arrivée de l’écolâtre Thibaud d'Étampes. L’université a en fait vraiment commencé à se développer à partir de 1167, lorsque Henri II interdit aux étudiants anglais de suivre les cours de l’université de Paris.

Elle accueille près de 22 000 étudiants, qui sont répartis dans 38 collèges et 6 Permanent Private Halls (fondations religieuses).

La plupart d’entre eux sont installés dans de beaux bâtiments anciens au cœur de la vieille ville d’Oxford (à voir : Christ Church, Merton College, Magdalen College, University College, New College). C’est surtout le style gothique qui domine et qui a donné à la ville universitaire son surnom de « cité de clochers rêveurs », tandis que la cathédrale Christ Church (XIIe ‑ XVe siècles) et l’église Saint Peter in the East (XIIe siècle) appartiennent en grande partie au roman normand. La façade du Queen's College montre le classicisme et on trouve des exemples d’architecture moderniste (par exemple, St. Catherine's College).

Sur le square Radcliffe se trouve la Radcliffe Camera (1747), qui abrite une salle de lecture de la Bibliothèque bodléienne, une des plus riches bibliothèques du monde. La Bodléienne est une des bibliothèques de dépôt légal du Royaume-Uni qui reçoivent, un exemplaire de chaque livre édité dans le Royaume-Uni.

L’Ashmolean Museum, fondé en 1659, est le plus ancien musée du Royaume-Uni ; son département des antiquités conserve notamment la chronique de Paros, le masque mortuaire d’Olivier Cromwell, et les pièces ramenées de Cnossos par John et Arthur Evans. Le musée contient aussi des dessins de Raphaël, Michel-Ange et Léonard de Vinci, des tableaux de Piero di Cosimo, John Constable, Claude Lorrain et Pablo Picasso, et des habits arabes portés par Lawrence d'Arabie.
