The Computing Science IFY course is based solely in the Jordanstown campus of the University of Ulster. The campus itself is a mixture of modern and seventies style buildings focusing around the main “mall” area. There are many great facilities students can avail of while studying at University of Ulster Jordanstown, the newly built sports facility being one example.
The campus is set on the Shore Road, just six miles from Belfast city centre. Students find it easy to commute from university living areas using Translinks’ Uni-Link service that departs from the top of Botanic Avenue on a regular basis and runs through to nine o’clock at night. From the campus you can see marvellous views of the Belfast Hills, the Mourne Mountains and County Down. It makes studying at Jordanstown a pleasure as such views prove a welcome break from Belfast city centre.
Within the Jordonstown Campus there are many resources, which are suitable and relevant to students. These include LRC (Learning Resource Centre), Labs and block 16C27/28, which were created for IFY(Integrated Foundation Year 2008) students only. 6.7 million LRC recently opened offering hi-tech learning and studying facilities.
