What is the First Seven Weeks?

The First Seven Weeks is an initiative at the University of Limerick designed to provide strong, enhanced and targeted support to students during the very early weeks of their time as UL students. Recognising that successful early adjustment is linked to subsequent success, we provide a range of information, target our resources, and interact with our new students in ways that make them know we care about them and are interested in their successful adjustment.

What's Involved?

Each of the first seven weeks has its own theme, designed to focus students’ attention on various issues that we know are important for settling in and thriving as a higher education student.

In 2017 for the first time, we are added an additional 2 weeks to kick off the spring semester. We had free workshops throughout week 1 and 2 to start your spring semester on the right track.
