Putting students & graduates on the right career path

Putting students & graduates on the right career path

The principle of employability is a cornerstone of the University of Limerick’s educational philosophy and a defining feature of the student experience. Since its establishment in 1972, the University has been committed to bringing the world of work into the learning environment and to maintaining our connectedness with the external world. For UL, employability is about much more than employment or even preparing students for their future careers. Rather we see it as a set of achievements – skills, knowledge and understandings – that make UL graduates more likely to gain employment and be successful in their chosen careers, to the benefit of themselves, the workforce, the community and the economy.
