The World Endeavors Study in Ireland program takes place at the University of Limerick. Among rolling green hills on the banks of the river Shannon, the University of Limerick provides its students with a curriculum designed to suit a rapidly changing world. Limerick attracts students from around the world who want to gain a deeper understanding of Ireland’s culture and lifestyle. World-class researchers and instructors come to the University of Limerick to teach its many different programs ranging from business to equine science, history, or engineering. With a busy and active campus life, students find it easy to get involved with student societies, work out at the university’s state-of-the-art sports facilities, or find friends to watch a football game with at the local pub. The university has a strong presence in town, and students will find themselves welcomed into an international student body and a thriving intellectual community.
The University of Limerick is an excellent choice for students interested in a broad range of classes, a friendly and welcoming student body, and the chance to learn first-hand what Irish life is like. Studying here is a great choice for students in any academic discipline wanting a new perspective on their studies, and Ireland is an excellent starting point for exploring the rest of the British Isles and Europe.
Limerick is a true gem of the Emerald Isle where Ireland’s heritage and future meet. The twelfth-century St. Mary’s Cathedral and King John’s Castle can be found here, attesting to Limerick’s rich medieval history. Meanwhile, art museums, galleries, and theaters celebrate Irish art of the recent past and present. It’s easy to find a pub where students and locals gather to watch football matches, while trendy restaurants serve Irish and international cuisine. The University is an important part of local life, and students and professors from around the world ensure Limerick is always connected and interesting.
“The countryside was absolutely beautiful, and everything was so vividly green. Pictures cannot do it justice. I came across some of the nicest people I have ever met. Throughout the course of my trip, I fell in love with the country – its history, its scenery, its music and its people. It became my home away from home.“
- Kristin, Intern in Ireland
