University of Limerick has been announced by the Sunday Times Good University Guide as Irish University of the Year 2019. Alastair McCall, Editor of The Sunday Times Good University Guide, said: “A second success in five years for our University of the Year is well deserved. The University is at the economic heart of this midwest city and the wider region, attracting brains and resources in equal measure. Its graduates are among the most employable in Ireland, prepared for work by practical courses and a work placement and internship programme second to none, which spans 1,600 employers at home and overseas. "The University of Limerick's excellent results in the annual Irish Survey of Student Engagement suggest its students appreciate their good fortune to be studying at an institution with both an excellent academic reputation and an eye firmly on the working world, for which it prepares its students so well."
