            Aside from the academics, which were fantastic, the facilities and campus were top class, from the sporting facilities, to the labs, to the grounds themselves, there is no better place to go to university than the University of Limerick.

            Excellent experience all round. The first two years consisted of excellent academic work which gave me a grounding in my area of study, I then had the opportunity to work in Department of Foreign Affairs to apply the theory in practice. I then studied abroad for a semester in New York before submitting a detailed research project in 4th year. It covered all aspects needed and was great fun at the same time! UL set me up for life.
