The University of Limerick (UL) is an independent, internationally focused university with over 15,000 students and 1,500 faculty and staff. It is a young, energetic and enterprising University with a proud record of innovation in education and excellence in research and scholarship. UL’s mission is to promote and advance learning and knowledge through teaching, research and scholarship with a particular focus on the generation of knowledge which is relevant to the needs of Ireland’s socio-economic development. The university offers a range of programmes up to doctoral levels in the disciplines of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences, Business, Education and Health Sciences, Science and Engineering.

UL offers high quality, innovative degree programmes which are relevant and current for the world in which we live. Our broad range of full and part-time postgraduate programmes, combine innovative teaching methods and award-winning faculty with state-of-the-art facilities. The University has an established reputation as an institution that has strong links with industry, commerce and the professions as well as the public sector.

UL graduates continue to enjoy exceptional employment prospects with a graduate employment rate that is consistently higher than the national average. Part of the reason for this is that UL has built an outstanding reputation and excellent relationships with employers through a variety of partnerships and through the university’s Cooperative Education programme, one of the largest in Europe. Each year, approximately 2,000 UL students across 56 degree programmes undertake a six- to eight-month placement as part of their undergraduate degree programme, one fifth of which are with international companies. This means that as well as having the academic credentials, students graduate from UL with professional experience that provides them with a solid career foundation.

Student Life

UL Student Life

The University of Limerick Student Life is based in the Student Centre and represents the student body. UL Student Life provides a range of services including a newspaper, monthly magazine, shop, graphics, welfare and academic advice and site link service.

Clubs and Societies

There are over 60 campus-based clubs and societies, and membership is open to all students. Joining a club or society is one of the best ways to ensure you make the most of your time at UL and to meet other students. Because many clubs and societies organise subsidised trips at weekends, it’s also a great way to see the country. Sports clubs range from archery to windsurfing and societies from debating to the International Society.

A Sporting Campus

Sport is an essential part of life on campus. Students can take advantage of our state-of-the-art sports facilities at the University Arena, the Outdoor Activity Centre and the University Boathouse. Facilities include the national 50-metre swimming pool, sprint track, suspended jogging track, indoor courts, cardio fitness centre, astroturf, powered rowing tank, 400-metre track and playing fields. There are over 36 sports clubs on campus, and the University Arena offers a packed schedule of fitness classes.

Support Services

A wide range of support services is provided by the University to enhance your student experience. These vary from student personnel services to specific learning support units. The Student Affairs Division offers various services to all UL students, including arts, chaplaincy/multi-faith services, childcare, counselling, disability support, financial aid, health services, services for LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender) students, student registration, records and graduation.

The International Education Division (IED) offers a comprehensive support structure for international students. We provide advice on immigration procedures, working in Ireland, travel, information on Irish culture, local customs and social behaviour. International students meet regularly with IED staff to discuss issues concerning living and studying in Ireland. An extensive orientation programme is delivered prior to the first week of classes. The programme gives students an opportunity to meet staff and other students, to receive information on courses and studying at UL and to become familiar with the campus facilities.

Great to be back in (virtual) lecture hall with #cognition students @UL 2d. An enthusiastic & interactive group of students. MS teams worked well with large group. I can see advantages of #onlineteaching already - eg. 'hearing' more diverse voices through chat function than f2f.
