Over 8,000 students, teachers and family members from all over the country have visited the University of Limerick Open Days. The University of Limerick offers 70 undergraduate programmes and staff together with current students were available during the open day tours to answer questions and discuss study programmes.
Director of Marketing at UL, Sean Reidy, said; “Open Days are a great way for students and parents to get firsthand information about the courses they are interested in and also get a feel for the student experience. We have had a great response to this year’s open day with students coming from across the country to visit the campus.”
Despite the challenging environment, UL's graduate employment rate continues to rise. UL’s most recent graduate employment survey shows the 2010 figure for primary degree-holders is now 16% higher than the HEA’s most recently-available national average figure which is 46% for 2010.A series of tours and demonstrations commenced across the UL campus with talks running from 10am – 3pm. Student guides were on hand to answer questions and give directions.
