Ulster University Jordonstown. I really enjoyed this university because they offered us loads of classes in the beginning to teach us how to reference and how to find our way about the campus. they also offer free counselling if you are feeling overwhelmed with the course

To be honest I don't know much about most of this though that is my own fault. I am a international student so I'm only here for a short time and I haven't really gotten involved in any societies neither have I had any interactions with the Students Union or the Careers Service but from what I've heard in passing they're all pretty good. Connecting to the Internet was a bit difficult on some days.

Would definitely avoid this student accommodation. For the high price, the rooms are extremely basic and the kitchen is completely bare bones and downright depressing. In the kitchen there is not even a sofa available to enable socialising. Staff seem to go on a power trip with fire alarms at Duncreggan Student Village, with these scheduled routinely every week, and are left blaring for up to an hour at times, for no apparent reason. Most recently, the staff set the fire alarm off for a test at nearly 11pm, when a lot of students would be showering, or getting ready to sleep.

The university is a great place to be, there is plenty to offer and great resources However I would say personally that haven't been wowed from joining a society, it's only £2 to join but nothing has happened, no meetings or activities for it which is highly disappointing as I joined in the hopes to meet new people and learn new things

Can’t believe how awesome this University is. Sarah Dargie and Henry Melki have put together the most incredible staff with the most realistic, student focused course I have ever been on. Yuan, Eoghain, and Alec are all incredibly talented, inspiring, and gifted educators. I could not ask for a better faculty.

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

For the Belfast campus, there is no sports only in Jordanstown. Even at this, trying to get out of class to play matches is. STRUGGLE. Teachers do not understand that a healthy body = healthy mind.

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.

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.

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.
