UNIVERSITY OF LIMERICK
Located on the banks of banks of the river Shannon, The University of Limerick ( UL) is a self contained campus and undoubtedly Ireland's most beautiful. For Indian applicants the most popular courses are in engineering and management, particularly courses like the MSc in project management, entrepreneurship management and innovation.
Limerick is the first university to accommodate a work placement programme for all undergraduate students which begins in their third year. Students get to work in Ireland or get placed in institutions around the world. It's a big factor in making them job ready and most find immediate employment in Ireland after they graduate.
A major reason for its popularity among Indian students is that the University offers a range of scholarships. Almost 80 per cent of Indian students admitted are given scholarships which cover 50 per cent of the tuition fee. These scholarships are given on merit and students are automatically considered for them while applying. In addition the management courses, UL also runs a popular nursing department. Surprisingly, over 80 per cent of the applicants come from Kerala. The government of Ireland offers scholarships for nurses in recognition of the fact that Indian nurses have a reputation for being very attentive.
