IMG_0338

As part of their UL Engage module, our MA in TESOL students, led by Dr Mairead Moriarty (Assistant Dean International), spent a number of weeks this semester delivering English language courses to refugees and asylum seekers currently living in the Limerick region. On April 26th, the Faculty held a graduation ceremony at the University of Limerick for the participants, where our MA students presented their own students with certificates.

The University of Limerick was designated a University of Sanctuary in 2017 in recognition of its initiatives welcoming asylum seekers and refugees into its University community.
