Contact the Team

The International Student Experience (ISE) team are here to assist with your questions, queries or suggestions whilst you study.


International Student Experience Team

Our International Student Experience (ISE) team are a dedicated team of pastoral and support staff who act as a contact point for you should you have any questions, queries or suggestions whilst you study.

ISE will help you prepare to come to Ulster, welcome you upon your arrival and support you throughout your time with us.

With a dedicated team member on each campus, support is there for you where and when you need it.

To ensure you feel right at home, you will have the opportunity to participate in a wide variety of events organised for international students across all our campuses.

You will also be encouraged to get to know other Ulster students through engagement with the Students’ Union.

Book a Meeting

If you wish to speak to your International Student Experience & Support coordinator, you may book an appointment with them based on your campus location. Appointments will be made available via virtual meetings (Zoom, Skype or Microsoft Teams), or face-to-face on campus*, however, note that there will be limited availability for these.

For the health and wellbeing of our staff and students, face coverings will be mandatory if students wish to meet with the team; find out more about the University’s plans for a safe return to campus.

*Please note that if you are self-isolating, you should not book any face-to-face meetings with staff members until you have finished your 2-week self-isolation period.
