How It Works
Thanks to the exchange agreement between University of Limerick and ETSU, you can study at Limerick while paying your tuition fees to ETSU making it an unbelievably affordable study abroad destination for ETSU students.
There are five on-campus student living villages. Each living facility offers single bedrooms, a large kitchen, large living room, two bathroom facilities, telephone and cable TV. There is no meal plan at UL. However, you can buy meals from cafes and cafeterias located on campus or cook at home with your roommates.
The suggested route to UL would be to take a flight to Shannon Airport and then arrange for some form of public transportation to take you to the UL campus.
