2023/24 Semester 2


At Ulster, we recognise that deciding to move to another country to study is a big step and, as well as coping with your academic work, you will be adjusting to living and working in a different environment. We appreciate the importance that international students place on their accommodation needs when settling quickly into a new environment far from home *. Therefore, we offer certain guarantees of accommodation as follows:

(a) Full time Students from Overseas (These are students from outside the European Union): are guaranteed an offer of accommodation in the first year of study. This guarantee only applies to students who are categorised as “overseas” for fee purposes, have firmly accepted an offer of a course of study for a minimum of one academic year, and whose completed accommodation application is received by 14tht August in the year admission is sought. Applications may be made throughout the year, but the guarantee does not apply after the 14th August deadline.

(b) Visiting/Exchange Students from Outside the European Union: if you are a student from outside the EU and you apply under the Exchange, ISEP, or Junior Year/Study Abroad programmes to study at Ulster for a single semester only, you will be guaranteed an offer of accommodation for Semester 1 provided that your completed application is received by 14th August in the year of admission. An offer of accommodation for Semester 2 will be guaranteed provided a completed application form is received by 14th December in the year of admission.

(c) Other Students from Outside UK/Ireland (This applies to student within the European Union): if you are a student on Exchange or other programmes (for example, Socrates) you may be offered accommodation provided there are vacancies remaining.
