Ulster University is a multi-campus university that can trace its origins back to 1845. The university has now spread beyond its Northern Ireland roots to include branch campuses in London and Birmingham, run in partnership with QA Higher Education, formerly QA Business School. We are a truly international university with over 2,000 international students from over 80 different countries and Alumni from 121 countries.

The branch campuses offer globally recognised, fully accredited degrees at Bachelors and Masters levels. We have an excellent reputation for research, for providing work-based learning, and for the level of recognition granted by professional bodies.

We aim to create the best opportunities for our students by putting an emphasis on work-based learning. This contributes to over 92% of Ulster graduates being in employment or pursuing further studies within 6 months (DLHE Survey 2018).
