Program Summary & Location

The University of Limerick (UL) was established in 1972 and quickly gained a reputation among Irish universities for innovation. The University has become a focus for a wide range of ireland photoartistic activity and is home to some fine collections of Irish Art, the Irish Chamber Orchestra, and the Irish World Music Centre. Recently, UL was ranked number 1 by international students in Ireland in 3 out of 4 categories: Best Student Experience, Best Student Support and Warmest Welcome in Ireland. Find additional information here.

During the academic year, you can choose from nearly all UL classes, as long as you have the pre-requisites. *NEW* for 2018-2019:  Honors students can take an Honors course at UL! 

UW-Eau Claire students can also participate in UL's International Summer School, which offers a set of courses primarily focused on Ireland and Irish culture. The Summer School includes social outings and trips to Dublin and the County Claire coast.

Limerick, a vibrant city of historic and literary interest, lies in the heart of the Shannon Region, which offers spectacular landscapes, heritage attractions, leisure activities, and cultural pursuits. Founded as a Viking fortress in the 10th century, it is Ireland's oldest chartered city. An ambitious program of restoration has been implemented in recent years, restoring King John's Castle and St. Mary's Cathedral and successfully blending new buildings with old.
