Limerick, Ireland
The University of Limerick (UL) is located along along the River Shannon, on a 200 acres site within the National Technological Park at Castletroy, 5 km from Limerick city centre. UL was the first university established since the foundation of the State in 1922. It currently has in excess of 11,000 full-time undergraduate students and over 800 research postgraduates.
With a population of 80,000+ Limerick is the third most populous urban area in the State. Overlooked by Woodcock Hill immediately to the north, and the Silvermine Mountains to the east, the city is spread along both banks of the Shannon River, a few miles east of the Shannon estuary. It is a compact, walkable city where most of the sights and attractions are within a stone's throw of each other. As a student you will find that Limerick is a vibrant, young city that bustles as the commercial capital of the region. 
Program Dates:
Fall: Early September to Mid-December
Spring: Mid-January to Mid-May
