International Education at the University of Limerick


Overviewlimerick map

Through a special partnership with the University of Limerick, Adelphi students have the unique opportunity to earn Adelphi credit in Ireland.  Limerick is the third largest city in the Republic of Ireland and is easily accessible by air, coach or train. The UL campus, astride the majestic river Shannon, is regarded as Ireland's most beautiful university campus.    

Academics

UL is very popular with students of Humanities and Social Sciences; it is also an ideal destination for students of Business, Science, and Information Technology. Students may select and combine courses from all four Faculties of the university, thereby meeting their own personal major, minor, or general elective course requirements. Unique to UL, students have a 2 week “try-out” period for all classes. Students can go to as many classes as they choose for the first 2 weeks,  and then choose their top classes for the rest of the semester.

Find a full list of UL courses here. If the term you want to study abroad is not yet posted, refer to the same semester of the previous year.

Adelphi requires a minimum GPA of 2.5 to study abroad. University of Limerick has a 2.9 GPA requirement to be admitted into their program. If you do not meet these requirements and hope to study abroad, please email cie@adelphi.edu.
 

Housing and Meals

UL offers students on-campus accommodation in several “villages.”  Regardless of which village you choose, you will have your own private study bedroom equipped with a good size desk and complimentary access to high speed connection to the internet through the university network.  All five residential villages are self-catered, meaning students arrange for their own meals - fully equipped kitchens are shared with up to seven other students. Every Saturday there is a farmer's market on campus as well as 16 restaurants on campus (including a Starbucks).

Accommodation Options

Student Support Services 

UL encourages students to keep in touch with the office while on campus. UL offers academic support, counseling, a medical center, information and advice on immigration, accommodation and culture. They also provide specific pre-examination and pre-departure meetings at the end of each semester as well as a buddy program.

The International Office organizes a number of off campus activities each semester. These include a special Thanksgiving dinner in the fall and organized trips to Dublin and West of Ireland (or Cork) tourist attractions.
