University of Limerick

University of Limerick (UL), is located in the Wild Atlantic Gateway city of Limerick on the west coast of Ireland.

With over 18000 students, including more than 3,300 internationally mobile students each year, UL is an independent research-led university offering undergraduate and postgraduate programmes across Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences; Education and Health Sciences, Science and Engineering and the Kemmy Business School.

With strong links to business and industry, UL excels at translational research, which aims to accelerate the practical application of academic research to benefit society.

Furthermore, UL’s Cooperative Education programme – one of the largest of its kind in the EU –places over 2,000 students in paid and semi-paid work experience in industry, business and the professions across the globe. 30% of those Coop placements are internationally located and these valuable work experiences make UL graduates more employable, which is why the UL graduate employment rate is 15% higher than the national average.

With the largest Erasmus+ programme in Ireland, UL is Ireland’s European university with international reach while a survey of Irish students recently voted UL as Ireland’s most popular university with a satisfaction rating of 85%.

UL also offers a range of online programmes co-designed with industry to enable upskilling and reskilling for professional development. UL also houses some of the most innovative and successful research centres in Ireland. The Nexus Innovation Centre is a growing community of international researchers and entrepreneurs which supports new businesses and the creation of jobs.
