Ulster University in Northern Ireland

Ulster University was established in 1984 and it's located in Ulster, Northern Ireland. It has four campuses in Belfast, Coleraine, Magee College and Jordanstown, and a fifth virtual campus, Campus One, online. Each campus has a distinct focus, which means that students will typically spend their entire time at the University on a single campus, and over 2,000 international students from more than 50 countries are currently enrolled.

Six months after graduation, more than 90% of Ulster graduates are in work or further study, and over 4,000 students have successfully completed eLearning courses at Ulster University. Ulster was named a leading modern university and ranked in the top 100 globally in the Times Higher Education 100 Under 50 rankings.

The University of Ulster places a strong emphasis on employability, with many courses earning professional accreditation and incorporating work placements. This also leads to some one-of-a-kind facilities, such as FireSERT: a postgraduate teaching and PhD programme focusing on fire safety science and engineering.

Services for International Students

International Orientation and airport pickups are held one week before the start of the semester and consist of talks and workshops designed to introduce international students to the University and each other. CELT provides English language support on all campuses before and during the start of the school year.
