Sixth form and Fifth year Art and Design, Photography, ICT and Technology students attended the University of Ulster Open Night for prospective students. The students were able to see practical work completed by various degree students and have discussions with lecturers and current students regarding the courses available at this campus. These include: Animation, Architecture, Art and Design, Ceramics, Jewellery Design, Silversmithing , Culinary Arts Management, Graphic Design, Illustration, Interaction Design, Photography with Video, Product and Furniture Design, and Textile Art. The Belfast campus is situated in the artistic and cultural centre of the city - the Cathedral Quarter. Although traditionally associated with Art, the campus spans an increasing and exciting range of subjects including architecture, Hospitality, Event Management, Photography and Digital Animation.

Students learnt a lot about the university and courses on offer, as well as the environment and resources available in this university campus.

“I found out that the University art campus has a lot of group work, the coursework is thoroughly planned out before work is started and rooms in the campus are open in order to promote socialisation.“                                                                        Matthew Mc Kevitt Yr 14 Photography.

“ I visited the course ‘ Photography with Film’ and learnt about the course content, and the portfolio needed for interview.“                                                 Karl Brannigan Yr 14 Photography.

“ I went to Architecture and looked at the portfolios and the models that were made. I learnt how architects lay out their portfolios and what the models look like. “ Abel Callen Yr 13 Photography.

“ I had loads of chats with tutors, course directors and the students who were able to answer all of my questions about the areas I am most keen on. I now know what I need to do this year in order to have a chance of getting into the college.”                                             Molly Ward Yr 14 Art and Design.
