Home to over 13,000 students, the University of Limerick campus is green and spacious, and located a short bus ride from the city center. It has purpose-built performance spaces, exercise centers, and athletic facilities, to which all students have access. Classroom and laboratory buildings boast state-of-the-art facilities, and there is a comprehensive main library. The university is also home to several important art collections, and a major concert hall. Irish university life is active and social, and visiting students will not lack for things to do!
The University of Limerick program is ideal for students in diverse majors as students may enroll in a wide variety of regular university classes in majors including life, health, and theoretical sciences, business, education, environment and sustainability, psychology, European studies, Irish studies, and engineering. Please refer to the Limerick website for a listing of major areas of study (in Ireland, majors are referred to as “courses”). Please note, Sports Science is no longer offered to visiting students due to limited space in Sports Science classes.
You can even participate in a special Rugby Study Abroad program at Limerick – no experience playing rugby is required. Ask your IE3 Global Program Director for more information if you are interested.
