Grant Information for International Credit Mobility

The University of Limerick has an incredibly active International Credit Mobility programme, and this shows in the funding we have been able to provide students we send and receive under the programme.

During the 2017/2018 allocation, the University of Limerick received over €430,000 in funding towards its ICM programme. This is the highest funding of all Irish institutions in the programme, and over one-third of the entire funding available for the country. Between 2015 and 2020, UL will receive a total of €1,639,450 towards its ICM programme.
