Why us?

We can advise you on how best to connect with UL students and raise your organisation’s profile on campus.

We bring students and employers together through various programmes and events, including recruitment fairs, panel events and skills workshops.

We work with the entire student body and have close links with UL academic Schools and Programmes.

We welcome employers on campus during the academic year and offer presentation and interview facilities.

Presentations normally occur between October and December and from February until April, though interviews can be scheduled for any time outside of examination dates. 

Graduate outcomes

Building a national talent pool that is resilient, skill-appropriate and entrepreneurial in outlook is core to the third-level mission.

In the context of University of Limerick, the Cooperative Education Programme confers a significant advantage to UL graduates.

This is supported by substantial research on the benefits of work-based learning and is evidenced by the sustained high demand for UL graduates.

The data analysis of the Graduate Outcomes Survey 2022 shows that UL’s longstanding and well-directed collaboration with graduate and Coop employers has proven reassuringly hardy.

Overall, the report evidences employability resilience at the level of the student, the University and the region.


Employer in Residence Programme

The UL Employer in Residence programme is a unique opportunity for you to connect with students who are interested in your organisation and industry.

The programme occurs on Wednesdays throughout the semester, from 10.30 am to 3.00 pm.

Each session includes an employer stand, campus promotion, lunch, and an insight session on a specific topic outlined below with a fireside chat.

You can engage with students and staff, share your knowledge and skills, and raise awareness of your organisation.

You can only sign up for one topic at a time, as we have limited spaces available. We will inform you if there are any openings for other topics later on.

We will have no more than four employers on each weekly programme. We will contact you beforehand to confirm the details and topics of the insight/fireside chat.

The team will also offer any support or guidance you may require before and during the session.
