About Ulster University and Scholarship
Legally known as the University of Ulster, Ulster University is a multi-campus public university in Northern Ireland (Irish: Ollscoil Uladh; Ulster-Scots: Ulstèr Universitie or Ulstèr Varsitie). Informally and unofficially, it is frequently referred to as Ulster or by the initials UU. After the federal National Institution of Ireland, it is the largest institution in Northern Ireland and the second-largest university on the island of Ireland.
Originally known as Magee College, it was founded in 1865. In 1984, Ulster Polytechnic and the New University of Ulster merged, bringing its four Northern Irish campuses under the University of Ulster name. The university’s four campuses—located in Belfast, Coleraine, Derry (Magee College), and Jordanstown—were formed in 1984. The institution offers a robust distance learning program and has satellite campuses in both London and Birmingham. Though its official name remained the same, the institution underwent a rebranding in October 2014 and adopted the moniker Ulster University.
With almost 92% of graduates in employment or further education six months after graduation, it has one of the greatest rates of further education and employment in the UK. The university is a part of Universities Ireland, Universities UK, the European University Association, and the Association of Commonwealth Universities.
The Complete University Guide, The Guardian, The Times, and The Sunday Times each rate the university every year; these rankings make up the UK University League Table rankings. It was included on the 2001 Sunday Times University of the Year shortlist.
According to The Times Higher Education’s rankings among the top 150 international universities under 50 years old, the school is a preeminent contemporary university.
The World University Rankings for 2016 list Ulster between positions 401 and 500, placing it in the top 20% for its global orientation. According to the 2018 National Student Survey, 87% of Ulster’s students are satisfied, placing the university 23rd out of 154 UK institutions. According to a university review website called StudentCrowd, Ulster was placed second in the UK for the UK University Acceptance rates in 2019.
In 1993, the university began a program of selective research that was largely supported by Northern Ireland Development Funds (NIDevR), which were managed by the Northern Ireland Higher Education Council. The university’s performance in later Research Assessment Exercises—1996, 2001, and 2008—was significantly improved as a result of the policy. It also increased its publication output, external research funding, and knowledge transfer activities.
A further significant improvement in the university’s research performance resulted from the establishment of several research institutes in areas of established strength in 2002–2003 and the receipt of more than £40 million through the Support Programme for University Research (SPUR), funded jointly by Atlantic Philanthropies and the Northern Ireland Department for Employment and Learning (DEL).
All overseas students who have previously attended Ulster University on an exchange program or as a study abroad participant and who intend to continue their studies in one of the master’s programs are eligible for the Study Abroad scholarship.
