Interested in spending a semester abroad? Learn more about University of Limerick in Limerick, Ireland!

Located in the heart of Ireland’s West Coast in a bustling cosmopolitan city with traditional roots, the University of Limerick (UL) is a popular destination for international students. More than 13% of its 11,600 students hail from other countries. Among SNHU’s partner schools, UL offers one of the most diverse course catalogs for study abroad students. There is something for nearly every major! Of course, this may have something to do with the fact that UL was voted as having the best overall living experience in Ireland (and fifth in the world). Just three miles from Limerick and fifteen miles from the airport, UL offers a convenient location for exploring the best that Ireland and Great Britain have to offer.
