Changed my perspective on how fun education is

(5)·By Chloe M·Building / Construction· Jun 2023
When I finished school, I was relieved. I thought I needed a break but I didn't know what else to do so I got searching and seen a course on which I might be interested in. Before I knew it, I was walking through the doors of uni and I was scared but immediately I was addressed by a uni student to guide me and help me with my timetable. The first week went by and I knew I made the right decision I was so intrigued with this this new level of learning and the independence skill that came with it. Although it was a necessity to study but with walking past the library every day that itself motivated me to go in and just learn. There are several books helping with my course and just being in the library allowed me to just feel like it's a hobby rather than a form of learning. The independence and the ability to be yourself that ulster uni provided for me allowed me to feel successful and hopeful in what I was doing was the right choice.

Ophthalmics, Graduate

(5)·By Jane F·Ophthalmics· Jul 2021
Great- everyone was very friendly and I met lots of new people. Not fancy but great value. 1st years live in halls, everyone else moves out New sports facilities and gym, lots of options for clubs. Library- always space and usually quiet. Lecturers really cared about students. Small class sizes are a huge advantage over other unis. I went to the Coleraine campus, which is surrounded by a few beautiful towns.

Languages, Year 3

(5)·By R·Languages· Jul 2021
Freshers were welcomed into the university with different societies including ‘an cumann gaelach' which was great because it was exactly the society I wanted to join. The university offered a lot of support and had a lot of different types of events on, especially in halls of residents. The standard of living in duncreggan student village was very high, there was always heating and you felt safe which was key moving away from home for the first time. The halls were very clean as well, even at the most basic level of halls there was a cleaner which definitely helped in communal areas. The library is a very bright and open place so you feel motivated to study as soon as you enter. The university gym is quite small and basic but it is very quiet so you feel very comfortable walking in. Our course is quite small so we gained more of a relationship with our lectures. The lectures weren't overly long as well so you didn't get too distracted. The city life is a lot different to what I am used to, although it is amazing. Now working in the city I could see myself living there after university. The nightlife is definitely not to be missed!

Freshers week was amazing. I loved having the chance to talk and meet new people. I work from home and travel to university. The facilities available are second to none. They have everything to accommodate your needs The lectures are very informative and I gain a lot of knowledge. The city life is amazing, it's buzzing with people and an all round excitement

Ulster University has been fantastic. As well as being hands on in regards to further education, they prioritise social development. The course is well structured and focused on securing employment opportunities post-graduation. The facilities, lecturers and general atmosphere are all top notch.

Law / Legal Studies, Year 2

(5)·By Cliona D·Law· Jul 2021
Freshers week was good. There was loads of freshers fairs in uni which provided new students with essential information about starting university . I also learned about different groups and societies available within my university. Student accommodation was great. Top class security and my parents felt happy knowing I was safe where I was living Library is first class. We are able to access a variety of books to loan which help with assignments and there is plenty of study rooms available which I used for group work to meet with my group I find the course extremely interesting I was also fortunate enough to attend days out including visit to the courts and stormont Very different to get used to at first as I come from the countryside and only ever visited the city with my parents. I thoroughly enjoyed the freedom and having all shops and restaurants on my door step

Eye opening

(5)·By Rebecca L·Art· Jun 2023
Whilst studying Alevels, I truly believed I wouldn't be able to accept an offers from universities, due to being too self conscious and overworked.
But I was so wrong... Ulster has given me so many opportunities I thought I would never be able to partake in. The communication from lecturers, the understanding of a new subject and the allowance to grow and succeed academically and personally has been amazing. Meeting new people, making life long friendships and developing an interest in a career has never been so amazing.
I can't believe I was going to turn away from pushing my boundaries, but Ulster University has allowed me to, and I'm so grateful!

Pharmacology and pharmacy, Year 2

(5)·By Mary F·Pharmacology / Pharmacy· Oct 2018
Uni life in Coleraine is the BEST. Everyone is so friendly & the teaching is next to none. Having a university & living so close to the coast is pretty much a dream come true. It isn't your typical uni situated in a big city which makes it very unique. It is a very close nit community that provide so many facilities for anyone who visits. Love love love, best decision I ever made!
