I wish i could say a great deal about this campus. But it seems a disgrace to label it university of ulster when it only really displays excellence in its main building. The rest of the campus reminds you of a run down college.

I attended this university as a mature student, studying Irish and French. The courses were great and the camaraderie of the students and staff made it difficult to leave. The canteen served beautiful food at a very reasonable price and as far as I know is open to public. During WWII the American officers were stationed here. There is a... More

Many moons ago I did a diploma course here. Its teaching staff were helpful and very professional. It was worth doing and the experience was worth it.

Beautiful main building on a nice site. Tuition is excellent and the site appears to be quite good. Handy for clubs, pubs and local amenities. Not far from the city centre.

I chose this university for my Psychology degree, I am very happy with my choice, as its in a great location, its small enough to not get lost or feel swamped but big enough to free yourself and meet lots of new people. Theres different events on the Students union, Freshers & RAG week are both filled with themed nights,... More

I recently had to travel last minute to a conference at the University of Ulster's Magee campus in Derry. I was amazed at the wonderful architecture of the original buildings and the lovely people. I had to find a place to stay close by and at the last minute, which I did after I stumbled upon a Bed & Breakfast... More
