Orientation Programme

International Orientation September 2021

The programme will be delivered online (before arrival and during self-isolation periods) and face-to-face on campus. You will also be able to revisit our online sessions through our on-demand webpage. It is designed to provide you with information and advice to ensure you receive all the support you need to get the best from your time at Ulster. This includes a range of activities to introduce you to university life, living in Northern Ireland, and plenty of fun social events.
