Undergraduate Overview

The University of Limerick (UL) is an independent, internationally focused university with over 15,000 students and 1,500 staff. It is a young, energetic and enterprising university with a proud record of innovation in education and excellence in research and scholarship. 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. We pride ourselves on a reputation for delivering excellent research that makes a difference to our wider communities, economy, culture and the world at large. UL's dynamic research ecosystem attracts researchers, academics, entrepreneurs and high-performing students.

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.
