Providing strong, enhanced and targeted support to new students
WHAT IS THE FIRST SEVEN WEEKS?
The First Seven Weeks is an initiative at the University of Limerick designed to provide strong, enhanced and targeted support to students during the very early weeks of their time as UL students. Recognising that successful early adjustment is linked to subsequent success, we provide a range of information, target our resources and interact with our new students in ways that make them know we care about them and are interested in their successful adjustment.
Due to Covid-19 UL will transition new student orientation and the now extended First Seven Weeks Programme (F7W) to an online format.
We are hiring!
Virtual Peer Guides
The University of Limerick is currently recruiting Virtual Peer Guides to assist with Orientation and the student experience for the academic year 2020/21 to:
- Act as virtual Programme guides on SULIS
- Monitor & engage on all F7W media accounts
- Run a virtual information hub and provide virtual directional/location information

Each of the first seven weeks has its own theme, designed to focus students’ attention on various issues that we know are important for settling in and thriving as a higher education student. Check out our First Seven Weeks Programme or have a look at the First Seven Weeks Blog

FIRST SEVEN WEEKS RECOGNITION OF TEACHING IMPACT
As part of the First Seven Weeks initiative, we ask new students to identify the teacher who has had the most positive effect on their learning within those early weeks of their time at UL.
