The feeling of community at our Coleraine campus makes for a warm and welcoming student experience. The relaxed, outdoor atmosphere of the north coast is reflected in the feel of this thriving campus.

A wide range of subjects are available at Coleraine, which makes for an interesting mixture of students and staff.

Subject areas include:

  • biomedical sciences
  • environmental science and geography
  • pharmacy
  • psychology
  • the humanities
  • film and journalism
  • travel and tourism
  • teacher training

The campus sits on the banks of the river Bann, less than a mile from the town centre. Coleraine town is the largest and busiest on the Causeway Coast.

Together with the nearby seaside towns of Portrush and Portstewart and the Giant's Causeway World Heritage Site, this area is a major international tourist destination.

The area has an excellent selection of bars, clubs and award restaurant restaurants. For those interested in outdoor activities the local beaches, coastline and hills provide great opportunities to get outside and explore.

As a self-contained campus, all facilities are provided for: halls of residence; Students' Union shop, bar and cafeteria; sports centre; hairdressers; cash machines; coffee shops; supermarket and Post Office; The Streat café; canteen; and the Riverside Theatre, the third-largest professional theatre in Northern Ireland.
