A Warm Welcome
We have welcomed thousands of international students from over 100 countries to Ulster University so we understand that it can be a daunting experience travelling from around the world to get here.
We are here to help make that journey as enjoyable and worry-free as possible.
It’s important that you are well organised.
Preparation is everything so please take time to find out what you need to do before you travel and it will make your journey to university much more enjoyable.
Travelling to your campus

If you are arriving during our Welcome Weekend our friendly and helpful team will be availiable to assist you with getting to your University accommodation. So please ensure you let the team know of your exact travel plans as soon as possible.
If you are staying at our award winning accommodation, but are arriving before or after our arrivals weekend and would like additional assistance, we can book a taxi on your behalf.
