Overview of Ulster University

Ulster University is a community-based, extensive organization that focuses on educational programs, social services and vocational, technical and vocational training. It consists of four campuses, each with its own distinctive personality: Belfast, Coleraine, Jordanstown and Magee College. Students are put on campus according to their educational requirements and it is not feasible for students to study at more than one campus at the moment. Public transport links the campuses.

Established in 1968 as the New University of Ulster, it merged with Ulster Polytechnic in 1984, integrating its four Northern Irish campuses under the banner of the University of Ulster. In 1984, the college integrated its four campuses, situated in Belfast, Coleraine, Magee College in Derry and Jordanstown. The university has branch campuses in both London and Birmingham and a wide range of distance learning facilities. The University was renamed Ulster University in October 2014, including a modified graphic identity.
