Our Open days are held in October and January each year. If you didn’t manage to attend an open day;

  • You can liaise with the Course Director by looking up the webpage for that degree on www.ul.ie/courses and email them directly with any questions you may have.
  • Perhaps your school Guidance Counsellor might be interested in a classroom presentation on UL? Email us on schoolengagement@ul.ie and we’ll take it from there.

Yes; everyone is welcome to attend. Only the prospective student needs to pre-register.

Time slots for school groups apply to our October event as many thousands of students attend over the two days. If a slot is booked out, the system will prevent you from booking that time as it has been oversubscribed. For health and safety reasons, we have to adhere to capacity guidelines to ensure a safe event for all our visitors. Please book for an alternative day, or contact marketingcomms@ul.ie and we can advise you.

Please ask all of your students to book individually for the open day so that we can register their attendance. The school name can also be added to the booking.

If you’ve already booked and the numbers on your group have increased/decreased, you can let us know by emailing marketingcomms@ul.ie
