The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2019 has named the University of Limerick (UL) in Ireland as its ‘University of the Year’ once again for 2019. UL received this title previously in 2015 and its success and growth in multiple areas over the past few years has been the main reason for its selection as the best university in Ireland.

Major factors lending credibility to UL’s status as a world class university include:

  • Graduate Employability rates for UL students which are higher than the national average
  • Award winning research and excellent research partnerships with industry
  • Great student experience and popularity amongst international students
  • Work placement and Industry relevant internship programmes with a network of more than 1600 employers
  • Community engagement and cooperative education
  • International collaboration and partnerships with world’s leading universities
  • Teaching excellence and high quality academic staff
  • Opening of the Glucksman Library- one of the most digitally advanced libraries in the world

Alastaire McCall, the editor of The Sunday Times University Guide, said: “The University is at the economic heart of this midwest city and the wider region, attracting brains and resources in equal measure. Its graduates are among the most employable in Ireland, prepared for work by practical courses and a work placement and internship programme second to none”.
