University of Ulster open days offer a taste of student life

University of Ulster Chancellor James Nesbitt is urging thousands of prospective students to sample a taste of student life at the University this September.

"We are throwing open our doors to give students and their families a glimpse of campus life," he said.

"As a former Ulster student myself, I know that taking the next step in education, choosing course options and deciding where to study can be difficult decisions – but we want to make it as easy as possible for prospective students to make the right choice. During our Open Days we'll have all our offerings under one roof, so you can explore the range of opportunities - and chat with staff and students."

University of Ulster Open Days, in partnership with Danske Bank, will be held at Jordanstown Campus on Tuesday-Thursday, September 10-12.

Pauline Wylie, Marketing & Recruitment Manager at the University of Ulster, said: "Our Open Days are designed to give a feel for what it's like to be a student at Ulster.

"We'll be hosting fun, informative lectures on a diverse range of subjects from Architecture to Biomedical Science and Creative Technologies, plus lots of interactive demonstrations and tours of our accommodation, library and sports facilities.

"Open Days are not just for sixth-form students or recent school leavers," she said. "We want to encourage parents, mature students, anyone wanting to pursue post-graduate options to join us at the Open Day events."

All Open Days will run from 9.30am - 3.00pm with a special evening session at Jordanstown from 6.00pm - 8.00pm on Wednesday 11th September. For further information or to register for Open Days visit
