The University of Limerick, established in 1972, is located in Limerick, the third largest city in Ireland. Founded as a Viking fortress over a thousand years ago, Limerick today contains many architectural reminders of the city's past and offers a variety of cultural, artistic and theatrical events for students. Galway, Clare, Cork, Tipperary and Kerry are all within a day's excursion from Limerick. The University of Limerick is on a 160-acre site that was formerly a great estate on the banks of the river Shannon, three miles from Limerick city. Facilities include modern, well-equipped classrooms, a student center with lounges, a theater, and an art gallery. The University has gained a national reputation for its programs in Business and Engineering.
The study abroad program at the University of Limerick is designed to meet the learning needs of American and other foreign students. CCIS students may choose from hundreds of fully integrated courses at the University in the following Faculties: College of Humanities, College of Business, College of Engineering and Science, and College of Education.
