- Fall Semester 1st June
- Spring Semester 1st November
- Fully integrated environment: You will be integrated with Irish and other international students for classes, on-campus accommodation and clubs & societies.
- Extensive choice of modules: You can choose modules from across all faculties to fulfill major, minor and/or general education requirements.
- Two-week trial period: You have a two-week trial period on your initial module choice. This ensures that the modules you select are at an appropriate level and that you are comfortable with your choices.
- Sport: You will be given complementary membership of the University Arena (sports centre).
- Field trips and student events: The International Office organises a number of off campus activities each semester. These include a special Thanksgiving dinner in the Fall and organised trips to Dublin and West of Ireland tourist attractions. We also work with the International Society at UL to promote other trips and activities which are offered at discount prices to students.
- Tailored Orientation Programme: We offer a specific Study Abroad Orientation each semester. The programme includes day-time and evening events and takes place prior to week 1. It is an ideal way to settle in, meet other students and familiarise yourself with the campus before lectures start!
- Airport pick up: Students are collected from Shannon International Airport each semester on the Tues/Wed prior to orientation.
- Excellent support services: We encourage you to keep in touch with the office while on campus. We offer information and advice on immigration, accommodation and culture. We also provide specific pre-examination and pre-departure meetings at the end of each semester.
Modules are available across all Faculties.
Complete Module information is available in the Book of Modules.
Students coming to UL for Fall or Spring should select their modules from the Module Booklets which are available in our documents section on the left hand side of this page.
Detailed information about registering for modules, lectures, tutorials and exams will be covered in the comprehensive orientation programme when you arrive. The International Education Division also provides one-to-one advice on request.
Modules are mostly assessed by means of a 100% end-of-semester formal written examination. In some cases assessment will be done through a mixture of continuous assessment and a written exam.
