We Need U

Each year, thousands of students are deciding where they will study in September 2023.

There are lots of things to take into consideration including which campus to call home.

We want to help our applicants get a better sense of each of our 3 campuses by creating an exclusive campus playlist and we need your help to do it!

What’s Your Song?

We want you to think about your own personal experience at your home campus.

What are the songs and artists that best represent your personal experience at Ulster? You might be inspired by the campus itself or the areas that surround it.

Think about the music that helps you work, rest and play.  We want to know which songs are uniquely Belfast, Coleraine, and Derry~Londonderry?

If you need some inspiration…….

  • Belfast. At the heart of a bustling city.  A hive of energy and creativity where old meets new.
  • Coleraine. An outdoor lover’s dream. Epic beaches and rolling outdoor spaces on your doorstep.
  • Derry~Londonderry. Where the wild Atlantic way meets the Causeway costal route. A city of craic, music, and culture.

Prize Draw

Each student who submits a song will be automatically entered into a prize draw to win a £50 Amazon voucher.

We have a voucher for each of our campuses so what are you waiting for?
