Generation Study Abroad STEM Scholarship

The University of Limerick (UL) is an independent, internationally focused university with over 11,000 students and 1,313 staff. The University has a proud record of innovation in education and excellence in research and scholarship.

UL offers 72 undergraduate programmes and 103 taught postgraduate programmes across four faculties: Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences; Education and Health Sciences; Kemmy Business School; and Science and Engineering.

With the River Shannon as a unifying focal point, the University is situated on a superb 133-hectare campus. Outstanding recreational, cultural and sporting facilities further enhance this exceptional learning and working environment. The campus is located 5km from Limerick city and 20km from Shannon International Airport. 

UL has close links with industry from undergraduate to postdoctoral level. The University runs one of the largest cooperative education (internship) programmes in the European Union. Cooperative education at UL is undertaken as an integral part of the academic programme. UL has an established network of over 1,700 cooperative education employers, and 2,000 undergraduate placements are secured annually in industry, commerce and the public service. Students are placed in Ireland and internationally, primarily in North America, Europe and South East Asia. Employer contributions to the programme amount to €20 million annually. 

The University of Limerick has established its research distinctiveness through promoting a research ethos characterised by the convergence of discrete disciplines working together to achieve fundamental breakthroughs.  The following priority areas have been identified:
  • Materials and Surface Science
  • Information and Communication Technologies
  • Bioengineering and Biosciences
  • Energy and Sustainable Environment
  • Applied Mathematics
  • Study of Knowledge in Society
The University currently has four internationally recognised research institutes: Materials and Surface Science Institute; Stokes Institute; Lero – Irish Software Engineering Research Centre; and Institute for the Study of Knowledge in Society. These multidisciplinary institutes offer a wide range of opportunities at masters, PhD and postdoctoral level.

Study Abroad Programme Highlights

  • Fully integrated environment: You will be integrated with Irish and other international students for classes, on-campus accommodation and clubs & societies.
  • Extensive choice of modules (courses): You can choose modules from across all faculties to fulfill major, minor and/or general education requirements.
  • Two-week trial period: You have a two-week trial period on your initial module choice. This ensures that the modules you select are at an appropriate level and that you are comfortable with your choices.
  • Sport: You will be given complementary membership of the University Arena (sports centre).
  • Field trips and student events: The International Office organises a number of off campus activities each semester. These include a special Thanksgiving dinner in the Fall and organised trips to Dublin and West of Ireland tourist attractions. We also work with the International Society at UL to promote other trips and activities which are offered at discount prices to students.
  • Tailored Orientation Programme: We offer a specific Study Abroad Orientation each semester. The programme includes day-time and evening events and takes place prior to the first week of classes. It is an ideal way to settle in, meet other students and familiarise yourself with the campus before lectures start!
  • Airport pick up: Students are collected from Shannon International Airport each semester on the Monday and Tuesday prior to orientation.
  • Excellent support services: We encourage you to keep in touch with the office while on campus. We offer information and advice on immigration, accommodation and culture. We also provide specific pre-examination and pre-departure meetings at the end of each semester.
