The University of Limerick is ranked among the top universities for international students to study and live according to a recent international student survey. UL achieved multiple global top ten rankings including employability, language support, accommodation and campus environment in the International Student Barometer (ISB) survey, which involved over 160,000 international students across 180 universities in 18 countries.
UL was ranked 1st out of 39 European universities for providing a learning experience that will lead to good employability which echoes UL’s leading position for employability in Ireland – UL graduates are 18% more likely to be employed after graduation than graduates from any other Irish university.
UL further excelled by being ranked in the top ten for International Office, host culture, visa advice, social facilities and activities, halls of residence support and sport facilities.
Josephine Page, Director, International Education Division welcomed the results: ‘The student experience is extremely important at UL and I am delighted to see our efforts reflected in the survey. Across the students surveyed, over 90% were satisfied with their experience at UL which mirrors the feedback that we consistently receive from our students’.
The results of the survey further add to a very successful year for UL which was named the University of the Year 2015 in the Sunday Times Good University Guide.
The ISB is independently administered by the International Graduate Insight Group (i-graduate.org). The ISB examines four main aspects of the university experience – Arrival, Learning, Living and Support, and the University ranked highly in a number of key areas, particularly those related to the student experience and student support.
