University of Delaware Institute for Global Studies
Spring 2022: Limerick, Ireland

Program Dates January 17, 2022 - May 17, 2022
This program is closed.

Program Overview If you do not have a current passport, you should be aware that COVID-19 has delayed passport processing times significantly. The U.S. State Department has announced that it now takes an average of 18 weeks (4.5 months) to process a passport.

Given the circumstances, if you want to study abroad in 2022, you need to apply for or renew your passport NOW - even if you’re not 100% sure about your study abroad plans yet. We recommend expediting both the processing time and the shipping time for your passport.


Traveling and studying abroad during a global pandemic poses new challenges and requires accepting a higher level of uncertainty than in the past. Students who choose to study abroad at this time must be prepared to adapt to the evolving situation and must take responsibility to act in accordance with the rules, regulations, and recommendations of UD, their program leadership, and legal authorities of their home and host country. Due to the rapidly changing and unpredictable global and local response to COVID-19, these rules, regulations and recommendations are subject to change at any time.

The University will continue to monitor the ongoing situation with COVID-19 (coronavirus) as we approach the departure date for this program. Please reach out to your program coordinator or faculty director with questions and continue to monitor the UD coronavirus webpage for updates.

If UD decides to cancel a study abroad program, we will communicate directly with affected students. In this case, the University of Delaware will reimburse the cost of program fees, tuition and flights (if purchase was advised by CGPS).


Study at Ireland’s University of the Year for 2019 as selected by the Sunday Times Good University Guide. The University of Limerick (UL) Ireland, established in 1972, is an independent, internationally-focused university with over 13,000 students and 1,400 staff. It is a young, energetic and enterprising university with a proud record of innovation in education and excellence in research and scholarship. The University is situated on a superb riverside campus of over 133 hectares with the River Shannon as a unifying focal point. Outstanding recreational, cultural and sporting facilities further enhance this exceptional learning and working environment. The University of Limerick campus is located in the Midwest region of Ireland and is 5km from Limerick City and 20km from Shannon International Airport, servicing direct flights to and from the United States.

Limerick, capital of the country’s mid-west region, is one of Ireland’s most culturally diverse and inclusive cities. It is a bustling and vibrant city noted for its shopping, dining, entertainment, cultural and historical significance and contributions to the arts. Home to more than 200,000 people, of whom almost 50% are under the age of 30,Limerick is a fast-moving and cosmopolitan city in which to live and study.

Study abroad students have free access to the University Arena, which includes a 50-meter swimming pool, a fully equipped gym, an indoor running track and a wide variety of fitness classes. With over 60 clubs and organizations to choose from, students can learn new sports such as archery, diving, windsurfing and much more, or share their interest in photography, drama, traditional music or politics, for example. Study abroad students also have access to the university’s support centres which operate on a free, drop-in basis and include the Math Learning Centre, Science Learning Centre, Writing Centre and Information & Communications Technology Centre.

Community Engagement: Students have the opportunity to volunteer in the local community, the best way to get to know the Irish.

The Program Fee includes on-campus housing in 6- or 8-bed apartments with internet access, airport pick-up in Limerick on the designated arrival date, all program-related activities and excursions, and international medical insurance. Students will need to budget for meals, laundry, cellphone, bed linens for the apartments, books, Garda National Immigration Fee (currently estimated at €300), and other personal expenses. Students are required to have a cellphone capable of making local calls in Ireland and of sending and receiving text messages in Ireland.

The Program Fee does NOT include airfare to/from Ireland, nor does it include airport transfers in the United States. The program officially begins when students arrive in Limerick. Students will receive detailed travel instructions after acceptance, explaining how and where to purchase their plane ticket. See the Cost section below for estimate airfare. For this program, students will be given recommended flight itineraries for traveling together.

ACCESSIBILITY: Student housing and classrooms will not have air conditioning. Students with disabilities are welcomed and encouraged to study abroad, but should be aware that accessibility and accommodation in some program locations may differ from the United States. Transit systems and legacy building construction practices may not meet U.S. accessibility standards, and alternative access to public transportation, buildings, or public sites cannot be guaranteed. Review these questions with the Office of Disability Support Services to determine whether this program can meet your accommodation needs.
