Unique blended semester opportunity available for students unable to travel yet still wanting an Irish international experience.
As many universities have had to switch to remote teaching, the University of Limerick is delighted to offer students disappointed by the inability to travel the opportunity to still gain key experiences and knowledge about Ireland from the comfort and safety of their own homes.
By selecting UL’s most popular Irish cultural classes, this entirely remote programme has been designed to have a particular focus on Irish culture, Irish history and Irish music and performance. Emphasis will be on interactive learning and classes are designed to incorporate group work with students from other parts of the US, Europe and the world.
