UL students deliver English language classes to refugees and asylum seekers


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.
