The university of Limerick doesn't do a lot in the field of psychology (which is my major); it's not easy to getinto touch with locals since there are large numbers of international students; Ireland's rather expensive; the weather is terrible; and most importantly, many Irish students drink huge amounts of alcohol and are permanently partying - if you want to get some studying done (or if you're not the drinking type) you'll be somewhat left ou
Hi there, sorry to hear that your international experience wasn't as expected. UL does have a School of Psychology which is surprising that you didn't pick up modules in that area. The Department of Psychology at the University of Limerick offers undergraduate and postgraduate programmes that focus on contemporary social issues and foster curiosity, critical thinking and compassion in students and graduates. Complementing and underpinning these offerings is a research agenda focuses on exploring and understanding the key social issues of our times. Key and emerging research themes include social psychology, clinical and health psychology and experimental psychology.
In terms of meeting local students, we have 15,000 students, around 2,000 of which are international students per year so there are lots of local students on campus.
If partying is not your thing, we do recommend that you join some of the University Clubs and Societies, they organise activities in areas as diverse as American Football, Drama, Ju Jitzu and many others. Visit https://ulwolves.ie/ for more information.
