UL International Buddy Programme (Incoming Students)


If you are an international student coming to UL in the near future, then we would recommend that you consider signing up to our International Buddy Programme, which matches up hundreds of newly arrived international students with current UL students. Anyone that moves to a new area needs a little help and guidance in their initial few weeks and that's where our Buddies come in. They are on hand to provide tips and advice, answer any questions you may have and to help you get the most out of your time in Limerick and Ireland. We also offer a number of ‘Buddy Events’ throughout the semester, which provide you with many opportunities to get to know other Irish and international students in UL.

The application process is now open for the International Education Division’s Buddy Programme for Autumn Semester 2019. If you would like to sign up for the Buddy Programme, simply click on this link and fill in the short application form. We would recommend applying early as we need to put a cap on applications every year due to high demand. If you have any questions about the Buddy Programme, then you can contact us at buddyprogramme@ul.ie. We’d love to hear from you.
