The University of Limerick and Mary Immaculate College have topped an International student satisfaction survey of Irish universities. The survey carried out by StudyPortals gathered reviews from over 15,000 students from all over Europe.

Ireland came in second in the overall category, with Norway in first place and Poland in third. The University of Limerick was the highest rated college in Ireland with an “outstanding score” of 9.5, beating University College Cork and University College Dublin.

“Studying abroad in Limerick was one of the most impacting experiences of my life…there isn’t anything negative I can say about my experience,” one American student said.

The majority of international students polled, said that the Irish people was one of the best parts of their study experience.

“The Irish were open-minded, helpful and very friendly, I immediately felt at home.

“I received a lot of support from the college and I knew there would always have been a person I could have gone to when I would have had problems,” an Austrian student said.

Students can leave anonymous messages on the StudyPortal website about their time at any University around Europe.

“Limerick taught me so much about living in an Irish city. It had great bus connections to other cities, making weekend travelling a very feasible option.

“However, many local pubs, eateries, and activities made Limerick a wonderful place to call home,” said one American student.

“The quality of teaching is excellent, the teachers and staff are very welcoming and always ready to help the students. Foreign students are very welcome and the atmosphere is friendly and warm. I would definitely recommend this college,” a French student said.

“I had a once in a lifetime experience at an amazing school with people I will never forget,” an American student said.
