Prospective Students

Welcome to the University Covid-19 webpages for prospective students. 

As much as we would like to have you come to visit us, talk to our lecturers in person at Open Days and events, international fairs, and careers events, invite us to your school for a visit and chat,  or indeed to your place of work, we obviously can’t do a lot of that this year in the usual way due to the Covid-19 pandemic.  However, we plan on bringing all these services to our prospective students, their guidance counsellors, teachers, and employers this year through virtual means. 

Please explore the content below to find out more about what changes have been made this year.

What is student life like now for new students?

A review of the new and existing student pages here will give you a broad outline of what student life and learning it like now at UL.  https://www.ul.ie/covid/ul-new-and-existing-students.

For Guidance Counsellors

Events off Campus

The Health and safety of our students and staff are the utmost priority of the University, that includes adhering to all Government Guidelines.  This means that UL representatives are unable to partake in face to face careers events , however virtual UL presentations to schools are still taking place by our Admissions & Recruitment Office for Virtual Careers events and also by the UL School Liaison Officer for class presentations requested by school guidance counsellors or teachers.  To book a careers fair representative please book through the Admissions and Recruitment Office here.  For individual class presentations please book through our School liaison office XXXX

Accommodation

Yes - the on campus accommodation at UL is open. Full protocol and measures have been implemented to ensure a safe and successful student living experience on campus. Each student house/apartment on campus is designated as a ‘Household Cluster’ and students follow guidelines and protocol to protect the household cluster as you would with your family at home. Prior to check in, all residents must view a compulsory online video induction which outlines the full protocol and safety measures in place for the on campus residences at UL.

A full range of accommodation is available here and all bookable for next year.

Applications for the academic year 2021/22 will open in Spring 2021. A link will appear on the Campus Life Services website and advance notice will appear on social media.
