About Community Engagement

We want to ensure that the University plays a real part in local communities and that each campus and its resources are used for the benefit of the people in the immediate locality and beyond.

Community Engagement Team

Civic Ambassadors

As Northern Ireland’s Civic University, Ulster University plays a pivotal role in the community and values the impact of partnership and engagement.

Community Fellows

The Community Fellow program is aimed at those who are actively involved within Council areas and who have an interest in promoting the wellbeing and educational attainment of communities who traditionally would not have direct access to Higher Education.

Science Shop

The Science Shop offers all Ulster University students an opportunity to undertake a project with a community or voluntary group across Northern Ireland.

Looked after Children

The project aims to assist young looked after children to make a positive transition from primary to post primary school.

Care Leavers

Ulster University encourages applications from students and will advise young people who have been looked after by their Local Authority in foster or residential care.

Community Learning

We work with community organisations to encourage and support adult learners to consider higher education as a real and possible next step in their learning journey.
