            2002-2006, BSc

            Aside from the academics, which were fantastic, the facilities and campus were top class, from the sporting facilities, to the labs, to the grounds themselves, there is no better place to go to university than the University of Limerick. Situated just outside of Limerick in its own little community where the majority of students lived on campus made it feel like no other university I've been to in Ireland.

            I am very lucky to have studied there. One of the best UNIs in Ireland and Europe, I'd say. Great selection of courses. Fees may be a bit high, but definitely worth it.
