1. 5-star ranking

The University of Limerick has been awarded a 5-star rating from the globally recognised QS Stars rating system. This is the highest possible award and UL is the only Irish university to achieve this standard in 2021. This rating places UL in the top 2% of all universities worldwide.

We also earned the top rating in seven other categories - Teaching, Employability, Research, Internationalisation, Facilities, Innovation, and Inclusiveness. UL’s Kemmy Business School is now placed in the top 1% of business schools worldwide, having recently secured the “triple crown” of accreditation (EQUIS, AACSB and AMBA).

2. UL Grads get the jobs

A UL degree will place you amongst the most employable graduates in Ireland. Sustained high demand for our graduates means that over 96% are in employment or further study. Our graduate employment rate is consistently higher than the national average for more than 14 consecutive years – that means that our employability reputation is already built into your degree.

UL Graduates earn more than those from any other Irish university, outside Dublin (source: HEA 2021). UL is also ranked in the Top 200 Global Universities for Graduate Employability (source: QS Graduate Employability Rankings 2022).

3. Industry-led programmes that are highly relevant to the world of work

Postgrad programmes at UL are designed in partnership with employers. With UL’s unrivalled links to industry, our programme content is industry-led and research-driven.

Our strategic partnerships are your gateway to a wealth of professional networks. UL brings more employers onto campus than any other Irish 3rd level institution (source: QS Graduate Employability Rankings 2022).
