Students more info

Welcome to the student resource page.
Unitu is your new student voice platform at Ulster.


Students often need to heavily rely on their own personal platforms to give feedback & get in contact with their Student Reps. Unitu provides a safe place for feedback & allows all students to be involved & have an equal say.

All 26,000 Ulster students have access Unitu. We have created a feedback board for each of the 21 schools at Ulster. Further down you’ll see a quick overview of what this looks like. You will have access only to your relevant school board.

Access your Unitu account


So let’s get you started - see below some info & how-to resources. Have a read over and then login to see the platform for yourself. The best way to get going, is to start using the platform & interacting. Access your Unitu account via ulster.unitu.co.uk using Single Sign-On (meaning there’s no need to create a new account). You simply login to Unitu with your Ulster University credentials here

 

Unitu set-up


See below a brief tour of what your feedback board will look like and the handy features it includes.

Unitu allows students to categorise their feedback into for areas - post praise about what your enjoying, any issues you might be experiencing, maybe you have a question or an idea you would like to share.

This process of gathering student feedback will help students track their feedback and allow Reps to have a more organised, fair & professional tool to represent you all. Your Student Reps will interact & review posts – allowing them to gauge when something is a collective query (you can thumbs up to vote!) and then action.

If your course staff are enrolled on Unitu, Student Reps can escalate collective queries to the ‘public area’ of the feedback board for a staff representative to answer & engage on. You can collectively discuss the feedback with staff and visibly track how it has been acted upon in real time. Check out the ‘Members’ tab to see all members on your school board.
