What to expect if you come to UL

Here in UL there are some terms which you will hear frequently. Below is a brief explanation of some of these terms to help you be prepared if you are offered a place in UL.

Term Explanation
Lab Some but not all courses will have labs. These are practical classes where you can interact with classmates and complete practical work.
Modules Modules are the classes/subjects that you take each semester as part of your course and consist of lectures and labs / tutorials.
Module Registration Each semester you will need to complete Module Registration. This is where you choose / confirm the modules you will take for the upcoming semester. Your timetable is generated based on module registration information so if you do not register, you will not receive a personal timetable. 
Student Hub Online Student Hub Online is a run by Academic Registry. Students can log in to find useful information or to log a call for support with a member of the Academic Registry team.
Student Portal The student portal is where all of your information and student record are logged. You can also complete the following tasks in the Student Portal: 

 -  Module Registration (each semester)
 -  Update your personal details

Student Record Your student record contains all of your student information including your grades, transcripts etc.You can view your student record on the Student Portal.
Tutorial Tutorials are classes which are based on lecture material and which offer you the opportunity to ask questions which you may not have been able to in a lecture setting. 
ULSL UL Student Life: This is the UL students union. 
Undergraduate Students completing their first degree course are referred to as undergraduate students / undergrads.
Weeks In UL, we talk about our semesters in Week numbers. A typical semester is broken down as follows:
  • Week 0 (or earlier): Module registration takes place
  • Week 1-12: There are typically 12 teaching weeks each semester
  • Week 13: This is also called Reading Week and is designated time for you to prepare for your exams
  • Wees 14 & 15 / Exam Weeks: Exams take place over this two week period.

You can visit our timetable website for further breakdown of week numbers and the dates they correspond to.

 

Student Engagement

A high level of engagement results in a greater student experience. The more engaged you are during your time in UL, the more you will get out of your learning experience and learning environment. This refers to academic life such as lectures, study, and assessments, but also includes extracurricular activities such as membership of Clubs & Societies and voluntary activities.
Watch the UL Student Engagement video.

 

Transitioning to Third Level

The transition to third level education offers some amazing new experiences and opportunities for personal growth. However, it is also necessary to acknowledge that starting university is a big change for new students` academic, social, and personal lives. Students are likely to face issues in relation to these factors, and everyone will cope with these in a different way. The key is that whatever you feel or experience in these initial weeks it’s completely normal, and part of this experience.
Watch the UL Transition to Third Level video.

 

UL Student Supports
There is a range of supports and staff dedicated to helping students at the University of Limerick. If you feel like you need more feedback from university teaching staff, reach out and contact them. Don’t be afraid to ask for help & support from relevant sources, and don’t wait for somebody to suggest assistance - it is up to you to seek help.
