About the Scholarship:
Ulster University includes four campuses in Northern Ireland: Belfast, Coleraine, Magee College, and Jordanstown, as well as a fifth virtual campus, Campus One, which is available online. Each campus has a distinct specialty, thus students will often spend their whole time at the University on a single campus, and the university now has over 2,000 international students from over 50 countries enrolled. Six months after graduation, more than 90% of Ulster alumni are employed or enrolled in further education, and more than 4,000 students have completed Ulster University’s eLearning courses. Ulster was ranked in the top 100 universities worldwide in the Times Higher Education 100 Under 50 rankings as a premier modern university. The University of Ulster places a high emphasis on employability, with many degrees earning professional accreditation and incorporating work experience opportunities. This leads to certain unique institutions, such as FireSERT, a postgraduate teaching and PhD program focusing on fire science and engineering. A room is guaranteed for international students. On the Coleraine, Magee, and Jordanstown campuses, university housing is provided, while the Belfast campus has abundance of private housing and strong inter-campus transportation. Belfast, Jordanstown, Coleraine, and Magee are the four main campuses of Ulster University, with two smaller campuses in Birmingham and London. Belfast’s campus is located in the lively Cathedral Quarter, the city’s burgeoning cultural hub. The campus hosts a number of annual festivals, including the Ulster Festival of Art and Design, as part of a vibrant cultural community. The Jordanstown campus, located north of Belfast, is a key draw for residents who prefer to live in the city and commute to the campus by private car or using the city’s superb rail, bus, and taxi network. Coleraine, situated alongside the River Bann, is the largest and busiest town on Northern Ireland’s Causeway Coast. For students interested in outdoor activities, the Causeway Coast is ideal, and the campus is near to the town center. The Magee campus, which is a short walk from the city walls along the River Foyle, is made up of a combination of old and contemporary buildings, as well as modern and traditional services. While life is returning to a more normal routine for everyone, Ulster University recognizes that living and studying on campus may still be a stressful experience for some members of the university community. The university has taken a number of initiatives to ensure that the learning and working environment is a welcoming and comfortable setting for all. This includes programs like asymptomatic testing and ensuring that all children and staff have access to vaccines. As new government rules and public health guidelines emerge, the institution is committed to staying current. Ulster University has a new GBP 250 million campus in Belfast’s city center, making it one of Europe’s largest higher education projects. This campus’s facilities will provide a cutting-edge learning, teaching, and research environment with cutting-edge technology. The colorful campus, which is known for its art, holds many fashion events and art exhibitions, making it a fun location to learn and work. In addition to the new campus, the institution offers fresh new, high-quality housing in the city center. The university is now supervising a number of new and exciting developments throughout its campuses, including the completion and opening of its new Belfast campus, which is set to open in the near future. This is on top of a slew of new projects in Coleraine, Magee, and Jordanstown. Together, these changes are ushering in a new chapter for Ulster University, one in which students are at the forefront, helping to create and implement a variety of interesting student initiatives and programs to help them navigate these changes.
