    UL graduates continue to enjoy exceptional employment prospects with a graduate employment rate that is consistently higher than the national average.

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.
