We are delighted to announce that the University of Limerick has been added to the prestigious Kuwaiti Government Scholarship scheme which sends thousands of students overseas from Kuwait each year. UL’s opportunities for practical education, work experience and safe, friendly environment were cited as the reasons for adding the University to the scholarship scheme. Of particular interest are the areas of Health Sciences and Engineering. This announcement will give Kuwaiti students an excellent opportunity to study at UL and will broaden the international student population within the University.
