WHY ULSTER?

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 recognized, 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).

Choosing to study an undergraduate or postgraduate degree is an important investment, but with some clever budgeting, you can really take the financial pressure out of student life. Here we take a look at studying in the city of Birmingham.

It isn’t just rent that is cheaper in London, either. General living costs as indicated by Number see Birmingham with a Cost of Living Index  score of 68, while London scored 84.
