The University of Limerick (UL) welcomes and supports all first-year students in their transition to third level education. As part of this commitment, UL established a Student Engagement and Success (SES) Unit, supported by the First year Support Co-Ordinator (Student Affairs Division), the First Year Librarian (Glucksman Library) and an Educational Developer, Student Engagement and Success (Centre for Transformative Learning).

In July 2021, the SES Unit was expanded to include four Student Engagement and Support Officers from the Student Affairs Division.

The Student Engagement and Support Officers (SESOs) are aligned with one of each of the four faculties here in UL and provide support to students at all stages of Undergraduate Programmes.

The SES Unit are here to support your transition into 3rd level to ensure that you get all the support you need to make your first year a success. Coming into first year of university is a transition in everyone's life.

If you, or any of your friends, begin to experience doubts or are having difficulties setting-in or making positive progress in your course, the SES Unit are here to help where they can.
