Review title for Ulster University Coleraine

(5)·By Ava O·Psychology· Jun 2024
I moved to Coleraine so I could live on campus while attending university. I was nervous and anxious before moving as I knew no one and was unfamiliar with the area. However, those feelings soon went away as on my first night on campus, I made some of the closest friends I know I will have for life. The accommodation exceeded my expectations; the rooms are clean and have enough space for me to do my university work. I share a shower and kitchen with other girls, and I have no complaints. The showers are always warm, and the kitchen facilities are perfect. One complaint I have is that the heating was never on long enough for me in the winter as I found it very cold, but luckily I had my electric blanket. Ulster University Coleraine campus is beautiful, and the building itself is huge, which was intimidating. The staff within the university are lovely, and my lecturers are always willing to help if I am ever stuck. The university has a range of social events within the student union, and their 24-hour library is perfect for those who study best at night like myself. For those who are scared to move far from home and meet new people, I would tell them not to worry at all and would really recommend it!

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.

Nursing, Year 2

(5)·By Jessica M·Nursing· Jul 2021
Freshers week was a good mix between work and play and I was able to get time to meet new people. This has helped me with the rest of my uni experience The accommodation was great Duncreggan student village is great value for money and the reslife team create many events so that you can mingle and meet new people! The facilities were great, there were many cafes mad places to eat at the university it's not too far from the town centre so location was great. The course mental health nursing undergrad is very intense but so worth it, in my second year and so far I have enjoyed every minuet of it! City life was good in derry , good mix of shopping, restaurants and pubs

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

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.

It was helpful and fun There was a lot of space at the hostel and it was comfy It was excellent as it was helpful when studying The lecture tutors were very helpful and were great at explaining and communicating with the students. It was different as I got to meet different people and different cultures.

This is my first year in the new Belfast campus and it is a massive change from Jordanstown. There are so many more facilities and opportunities provided for students now and it is a better learning environment for me. I have thoroughly enjoyed my experience so far.

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

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!
