DUP MLA Maurice Bradley has encouraged engagement on the re-launched consultation process for Health Sciences, currently located at Jordanstown.

He said: “Consultation is out again concerning the re-location of Health Science from Jordanstown. This concerns the move of courses from Jordanstown to Coleraine (as briefed to the Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council by the University VC) or to Magee.

“Full details can be found through the below link and I would ask members of the public to go on-line and register.


“It is vital that we lobby strongly on sound reasons why Coleraine should be a final destination.

“Just last week, local DUP representatives MP Gregory Campbell, MLA’s Maurice Bradley and George Robinson and group leader Cllr. Aaron Callan held a meeting with the newly appointed Vice-Chancellor of Ulster University, Paul Bartholomew.

Speaking after the meeting Mr. Campbell said “We felt it was essential to meet Mr. Bartholomew straight after his appointment to stress the important place the University has in the lives of so many people across Northern Ireland, particularly the Coleraine Campus which needs to be seen as a very important part of the University estate.

“The four representatives pressed the new Chancellor to work collaboratively on a range of issues such as the need to continue developing the case for the Veterinary School at the campus, working in consort with Causeway Council to ensure the Enterprise Zone achieves its true innovative potential as well as building on the sporting success of projects like the Harry Gregg Foundation which is based at the Coleraine Campus.

“The central theme of the discussion was that the Coleraine Campus has superb facilities and opportunities but more needs to be done to ensure that those seeking opportunities in Higher Education see the Campus as their preferred choice because of the wide range of options that need to be made available there.”
