International students share their Ulster University experience.
I studied an MBA at Ulster University in 2003. For the past 15 years I have worked at the Chang Gung Medical Foundation Centre as an Administrative Officer. I believe that with my UK degree and my UK experience, it made me stand out and got me this job.

One of the top reasons for choosing to study at Ulster University - the University is situated in Derry/Londonderry, the north west of Ireland.
