What is Pre-term?
Pre-term is an event Northern Christian Unions hold annually in partnership with Christian Unions Ireland. It is a few days away at Castlewellan, and a great way to meet new people before starting university. We open the bible together, explore what the Christian Union does and look at what it is like to be a Christian Student at university.
Is it for me?
Pre-term began as an initiative of Queen’s University Belfast, but has grown over the past number of years to include all Northern campuses. Last year we reached the capacity of what we could accommodate at Castlewellan castle, and so decided to split our pre-terms to allow even more people to attend! If you are going to be starting your first year of a course at Queens University in September 2016 (or you are a nurse starting in February 2017) then click here to visit the Queen’s CU pre-term booking page. However, if you are starting your first year of a course at any Ulster University campus, Stranmillis Teaching College, or Letterkenny Institute of Technology, then Joint CU Preterm is definitely for you!
When is it?
This year Joint CU Pre-term is running from the 31st August to 2nd September. You should aim to arrive Wednesday evening and it then runs right through to Friday afternoon.
How much does it cost?
If you can make it for the whole time (which we hope you can!) the price is £65, though if you can only make it for a day the cost is £20 (this doesn’t include an overnight). If there are any issues about how many days you can stay please email us.
Can I apply before getting my A level results?
Yes! Please do! If you know you want to come to a Northern campus you can sign up before results in August. We would just ask that you would contact us afterwards to confirm your place.
To apply just click ‘Apply Now’ below and it will bring you to the Preterm form. Please fill it all in and submit it. If there are any problems with your form or it won’t work for you please do contact us.
