Great to redefine your career
Tips: Ireland offers many scholarships for the student which need to be applied in advance. Check for the scholarship as you move ahead with your college application. Also keep looking for job opportunities parallely as the duration of the course is less and students might get overwhelmed with all the transitions happening at the same time.
Likes (Quality of faculty): Many social societies to choose from based on the student's interest which makes students enjoy college life. Career fairs are organised to get the students' idea of which companies can be applied for. The campus is big and gives a feeling of renowned university status.
Dislikes (Internships): The faculty are really knowledgeable and teach in student friendly manner. Their approach towards students gives them more confidence in learning new subjects. Practical and theory classes have a great balance to learn the industrial needs and adapt to organizational needs accordingly.

An exciting and satisfactory journey for the students.
Tips: Scholarships will be awarded based on your education qualification and previous experience. It will be part of your application process, no extra steps to be followed. It will be around 1500 euro and I got the same when I applied for this university. In terms of course I would say it was moderate, but if you want to enjoy student life then this is the right university for you to join.
Likes (Student Life): Lively campus with lots of activities and communities to be engaged in throughout your master's. A great opportunity to develop leadership skills if you are studying any of their business courses. There are varieties of clubs or communities comprising both academics and sports to choose from and lots of events are organized every week. Friday nights are the best that I have attended.
Dislikes (Internships): Searching for internships depends entirely on your ability. No extra guidance will be provided by the university on opportunities. In my experience to date, I haven't seen more opportunities for internships, however, you will have a lot of roles to avail of once you are graduated.

This university is a good place for post graduation
Tips: You should know that the course structure is not as easy as it looks like, they have a strict policy and education structure. Assignments will be tough but very informative, you have to study by yourself and cannot depend on ppts or lecture notes. Teachers are really helpful so they will help you out for sure.
Likes (Safety): Limerick or Ireland for that matter is very safe and secure for international students. You can be out late till 4 am and it’s not dangerous at all. People are really very sweet and are always greeting you and wishing for your well being, even random Irish people will ask you if you need any help and will definitely help you out. It’s safe for women, they can roam around any time of the day, anywhere.
Dislikes (Public transportation): Cabs are really expensive and buses only run till 10 pm. So if you’re out and need to come back late you have to take a cab. There are no tramps or any other source of transportation but just cabs, and they can be really expensive even for short distances.

Post-grad student's views on the University of Limerick.
Tips: My review only stands for postgraduate students. If you're an undergrad, do look for co-op placement courses that the University of Limerick offers. Additionally, I would suggest anyone coming over to Ireland to prepare their CVs and portfolios because the deadlines for graduate programmes and career fair is way too early for any student just beginning their academic journey here. Moreover, do secure a roof over your head early on- the accommodation crisis in Ireland is real.
Likes (Safety): Castletroy, where the university is located, is one of the safest places in Limerick. Overall, I would say Limerick as a whole is a lot safer than a lot of other places in Ireland. The kids over here could be a hassle, so just try to avoid any confrontation with them.
Dislikes (Internships): The master's programme runs for a duration of 1-year. Therefore you can't find any internships during this period. Additionally, there are no tie-ups with the companies present here where you could try to get internships later after your studies. While the undergrad courses in this university have some co-op placement courses that you may be interested in.

University of Limerick is a great place to pursue third-level qualification.
Tips: The accommodation crisis is dire in Ireland and students must acknowledge this situation before arriving, and must make arrangements before-hand, as not much can be done by the university in this regard. Also, there are various scholarships and grants that students can take advantage of, if researched and applied timely.
