Ulster University Student Opportunity Fund - Impact

This fund helps students fulfil their potential, realise their ambitions and transform their futures.

Ulster University is a pioneer. We are committed to bringing down the barriers which prevent people with ability and drive, especially those from low income families, from going to university and reaching their potential.

Donations to the Ulster University Student Opportunity Fund help us to foster and develop the sports stars, scientists, creatives, entrepreneurs and leaders of tomorrow. In a nutshell, you can help students fulfil their potential and transform their futures.

Unrestricted gifts to the Student Opportunity Fund mean we can respond to developments and identify where your gift can have the most impact at any given time.
