“A place of learning.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

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.

“University of Ulster, Magee”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2012

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.

“A place of great memories”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2012

Having worked and studied at Magee College in the late sixties, it still thrills my heart to go back and see this wonderful University site (although I was appalled to see they had covered up all the lovely tiles in the magnificent hallway - and removed all the historical pictures)
The modern buildings, necessary as they are, detract from the historial building.

“Great University, a real gem.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2012

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, mystery tours and quizzes...
In terms of education, the course i chose takes a very mathematalical and scienctific approach which will be better when i try to find a job, although i would have preffered more theory and 'actual' psychology... its not what i imagined... I thought we would be learning about body language and lying etc but there was a lot of maths and research...
Overall it was brilliant, definatly reccomend going!
