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.
