Many opportunities available within your course and outside of it eg/ clubs, travel and freshers fayre allow you to get many freebies and discounts at places around Belfast. The cafes have great food and drinks and the library is great to study and research in.
Alright university, incredibly infuriating that if you're doing a computer science degree that you are unable to choose your modules. They push Web Development like no other, even when you're uninterested. If you want to do robotics, AI or Computer vision, go to Queens
Even with the impact of Covid I have still managed to get a lovely year with minimal insights on campus. I’m basing this rating of the experience I got on campus and would highly recommend as their teaching is amazing :)
Ulster university is located perfectly in the city center. This makes it easy to walk to places. The teachers and staff are easy to approach. There is always activities for students to join. I like that all classes/workshops are located in the one building. Only thing I wish is that the workshops were open on the weekend.
I'm an ERASMUS exchange student and the first time I arrived at Ulster I was a bit lost because it is a huge university (Jordanstown Campus) but you find yourself quickly as there are signs and maps in the Uni. So far the teachers I have are great, but you have to put in the work; If you do not study, chances are you'll fail, there's no secret. And also, do not be afraid to ask questions when you do not know something. It's better to ask a question and take the risk of being "a fool", than staying a fool all your life because you were afraid to just ask
Good WiFi availbale on campus Excellent speedy response careers service and active on social media alerting you to local and global opportunities to enhance your cv Ample amount of clubs and societies to join particular it you enjoy sport
Jordanstown campus is a lovely area but the rooms are ancient, as is the tables and chairs. Societies are a joke in comparison to every other uni on the planet. They say they have loads but if I'm based in Jordanstown, am I really going to travel to Coleraine one night a week for an Irish dancing class? I think not. What's more, so many societies hardly organise activities. Take the Communication society for example. First semester they had a pub crawl and that was it. Doesn't seem very academically driven, does it?
This university is well run and has good physical facilities , however it is massively lacking in a university on campus counsellor , considering the amount of mental health issues particularly within the fine art department and across the other courses. The university are making an effort with their mind your mood campaign for mental health, however its simply not good enough to offer 6 free counselling sessions with and off-campus facility. Honestly it makes it more difficult for students to reach out when in need of support , especially those new to the city. I find the general feeling in the university to be quite "non-community" for want of a better term. Students tend to keep to themselves and it lacks a social atmosphere which likely contributes to the lack of societies. It is unknown to me what the students union get payed to do. They seem to do nothing at all. I would like to see them earn their pay by tackling some of the ongoing student issues within the university.
As a student who has just finished first year I have to say that the society life here is great. I joined with very few people that I know and I am quite a shy person but after joining some of the societies here I quickly began to meet people. In particular I enjoyed activities run by the Ulster Society of Student Engineers who did a great job making engineering feel more engaging.
Scholls within the uni are being spread over four campuses staff are stressed and it has an impact on the overall experience the clubs and socities are disgraceful as well as the students union they simply dont want to know
Jordanstown needs more than just a shop in the student village and the gym is shockingly small. On several occasions I had to wait for several minutes to get on equipment I wanted. The career service as well as lecturers (business Studies) are all approachable and helpful
A good university and staff are very welcoming, not research driven but they are career driven ensured to a high standard that their students get jobs. Jordanstown university is quite dated however they are moving to Belfast investment in facilities in the Jordanstown campus is low and is understandable. Overall a great experience at Ulster university where the staff have time for the students.
Lectures are very helpful and friendly, good course content. Just really bad facilities, library opening hours are awful! University closed multiple days coming up to exams giving no place to study. Library is so loud, no quite place to work on a computer
Ulster university is a warm welcoming environment, even though Jordanstown is outside of Belfast it has the advantages of being away from the city with big open space to walk and chill between class and there are still plenty of places inside to eat and chill. There are a wide range of societies which make it easy to find something you love and keep pursuing it or to try something new.
The facilities in the School of Computing in Jordanstown are great. The building itself is old but that is to be expected since the move to the new campus will be happening soon. The Students Union could be modernised, but I really enjoyed my time in university and I’m glad I chose it.
Studying in UUB for two years now, I had a great experience while studying at Ulster University. The wifi works perfectly well, it is easy and reliable to use whenever you need it. It is fast and it helps you research things and the amount of MAC computers the university has, it's very useful- which means students can use CAD for their projects. The careers service and student union are very helpful as well if you need anything, for eg. Careers advice, CV, clubs and societies. Student Union helps you to participate in a lot of areas that will be great for your CV, for eg travel to Philadelphia to discuss issues that are related helping students with their welfare, competitions & many more. The campus has a bank, coffee shop, restaurant and a student shop called UNIQUE where students sell their designs to the public.
Great experience at Ulster. I would recommend it to any potential student. The Careers team really helped me secure placement and a graduate job. I would also suggest joining a sports team or society to make new friends.
