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.

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.
