Applications for the Autumn 2020 University of Limerick (UL) International Student Ambassador Programme are now closed. Be sure to watch this space as we will be looking for more creative, enthusiastic students for our ambassador programme in Spring 2021!
The UL International Student Ambassador Programme allows current international students at UL to connect and share their UL experience with prospective students by sharing blogs about all the different aspects of your time here in UL.
Student Ambassadors also are able to take over the UL International Official Instagram page, which will allow prospective and current students to get a real hands-on look into the life of a UL student.
International Student Ambassadors are given the unique opportunity to help students with their burning questions about life in UL, as well as showing and telling students what life in UL is all about.
Our Ambassadors are expected to contribute a minimum of just 5 hours participation per semester. Some of your duties will include:
- Provide two blogs per semester – check out blogs from our previous Student Ambassadors on StudyIreland.ie!
- Communicate with prospective students via email and social media
- Represent and promote UL in a positive manner
- Assist the International Office with events such as webinars, campus visits, orientation and videography
- Assist with updating the International Office's social media channels
- Option to help with the organisation of cultural events and celebrations
As well as being a great way to meet new people and make new friends, the hours contributed to the Student Ambassador Programme count toward the much sought after UL President’s Volunteer Award. Students can count 3 hours a week towards this award which is a great addition to your CV (resumé). If you are undertaking a full degree programme here at UL, you will be able to apply for the Bronze, Silver and Gold Awards. If you are here for a semester as part of the Study Abroad, Erasmus or Non-EU Exchange Programmes, you can apply for the Plassey Award. More information about the award can be found on studentvolunteer.ie so do check it out.
Upon completion of the programme, you will also receive a certificate from the International Office and should you require one, a reference for your CV (resumé).

See what our Ambassador Programme Alumni had to say about Studying at UL
This blog is created by students, for students. What better way to learn about life in UL than from the students who have lived and studied here! Nervous or stressed about moving so far from home? Not sure what Clubs or Societies to join? Don’t know what to pack? Our International Ambassadors are here to help you by writing blogs that answer these questions! They too know how exciting, yet overwhelming, it can be to study abroad, but that’s why they are dedicated to making this an easy transition for you!
