Academics at Ulster University Partnership

Courses

Ulster University has four campuses in Northern Ireland and each campus is home to different subjects. Search courses at each campus on the Ulster online modules catalogue

Each course description will have a module code, the semester when the module is offered and the number of Ulster University credits the course is worth. Courses offered in the fall are listed as semester 1 courses, courses offered in the spring are listed as semester 2 courses and courses that are year-long are listed as semesters 1/2. Choose only modules that start with 1, 3 or 5; you are not able to take other modules. 

Credit Conversions

A full course load at Ulster University is 60 CATS credits (equivalent of 15 U.S. semester credit hours).

  • 1 CATS credit = .25 U.S. semester credit hours

Please review all your syllabi and course materials when you are registering for classes (both pre-arrival and on-site).
