The University of Limerick welcomes and supports all 1st years in their transition to third level education. As part of this commitment the university has established a Student Engagement and Success (SES) Unit, supported by the First year Support Co-Ordinator, the First Year Librarian and the Centre for Transformative Learning. 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 settling in making or positive progress in your course, the SES Unit are here to help where they can. 

In July 2021, the SES Unit welcomed the addition of four Student Support Officer roles to the Student Affairs Division who work directly with the First Year Support Co-Ordinator. The Student Support Officers or SSOs are aligned with one of each of the four faculties here in UL and provide support to students at all stages of Undergraduate Programmes.
