Coleraine is Ulster University’s coastal
and riverside campus with a primary academic focus on science and health.
Because of its location, we call it our destination campus. A great place for students to live, to work and study.
Health and wellbeing lies at the heart of our provision here in both teaching and research.
And it spans areas such as biomedical sciences, genomics, psychology, physiotherapy and pharmacy
and optometry and nutrition. Our research and our teaching tackles global
issues spanning cardiology and heart disease, cancer, obesity and food nutrition, exercise
and they seek to make a real difference in the lives of others.
Our campus is a hub for PhD students and particularly international students come here to study
and conduct research. Coleraine campus was the campus that I would
need to go to, to study marine science. All the professors are like super active in
their field like currently up to date. I think here, it’s so beautiful, the coast
is near, there are many golf clubs and I am really into sports so I do golf as well and
I want to learn to surf. This is a really exciting time for the Causeway
Coast and Glens area. It’s a place that’s defined by its World
Heritage Site with areas of outstanding natural beauty.
We’ve had the Irish Open here twice and in 2019, we will host the biggest event ever
held in the island of Ireland with the Open Golf Championships
And then we’ve got all the outdoor recreation wrap-around, beautiful scenery, areas of outstanding
natural beauty and absolutely fantastic surf as we well.
The Coleraine campus is in the heart of the Giant’s Causeway, it’s in the middle of
an ecosystem which is essential to our economy here. The first enterprise zone in Northern Ireland since the 1980s gives this area a competitive
advantage. The fact that we have the project Kelvin cable
coming ashore gives us extremely high-speed connectivity.
Coleraine on the Causeway Coast is one of the most beautiful and inspiring places in
the world to study. Over the last number of years, we have made
a multi-million pound investment in our facilities here for both students and staff and at the
same time, we remain dedicated to our civic missions
And we share our campus with our local community through sport, education, media, and our theatre.
We are celebrating 50 years of the University here in Coleraine and we are excited about
the future. We remain ambitious in our plans to ensure
academic excellence in science and health with local reach and global impact.
