Introduction

The University of Limerick was established by the Government of Ireland in 1972.  It is located 4 kilometers (2.5 miles) east of the medieval city of Limerick on the banks of the River Shannon.  The university was developed to help meet the rapidly changing economic and social needs that emerged upon Ireland’s accession to the European Union.  It is, therefore, a dynamic and responsive institution, which has also played a pivotal role in the economic development of the mid-west region of Ireland.  The university also has become a focus for a wide range of artistic activity and is home to some fine collections of Irish art, the Irish Chamber Orchestra, and the Irish World Music Centre.

The University of Limerick offers a wide variety of undergraduate and postgraduate programs in the following areas: arts, business, education, engineering, health sciences, humanities, social sciences, and science (including equine science).

In addition to semester and academic year the University of Limerick offers an International Summer School program. 
 

Academic Program

The University of Limerick offers more than 70 undergraduate programs across the following faculties: To search for courses (called modules) see the Book of Modules. It is helpful to use the Advanced Filters for year, term, undergraduate, and visiting student, plus select Faculty, department, and module(s) of interest before clicking the search button.  Click the circled "?" for informative support documentation.   

For guidance on the academics applicable to visiting students see the Modules Handbook. This is only a guide; module availability is subject to change each term. 

Location

Ireland is the most westerly country of the European Union, separated from Great Britain by the North Channel on the northeast and the Irish Sea on the east.  The landscape varies from bogs and lakes in the central lowlands to mountains and rocky islands in the west.  Between these two extremes, the island has abundant lush, green pastureland but little natural woodland. Winters in Ireland are mild and summers temperate due to the prevailing south westerly winds and the influence of the warm waters of the North Atlantic Drift (Gulf Stream).  The currency of the Republic of Ireland is the euro (€).

The third largest city in the Republic of Ireland, Limerick was founded by the Vikings over a thousand years ago.  Limerick City (population 91,000) is a lively, interesting and attractive place to live and study.  The city is magnificently sited on one of Europe’s finest rivers, the Shannon.  It is near Shannon airport for both transatlantic travel and affordable travel throughout Europe.
