Moving to a new city can be super difficult, and often feel like you are completely starting over! This can be so much harder if you’ve have never lived on your own before (like me)! Here are just some suggestions and tips for living life at UL!
Try to get to know your housemates! I was super lucky with my housemates, all of whom were so social! This made it so much easier to find my footing when I had other people there for support!
Invest in a leap card! This will save you so much money when travelling around Limerick. I never actually got one, and regret how much I have probably spent on transport!! Pretty sure you can just pick them up at the student’s union!
If you’re living in Dromroe Village, make sure not to lock yourself out of your room!…

Elias traveled from Ethiopia to the Irish World Academy of music and dance to study for a semester through the Erasmus Plus International Credit Mobility Programme, here he reflects on his time in Limerick.
I arrived at the Irish World Academy of Music and Dance, University of Limerick, in September 2017. After months of preparation and paperwork, I still did not know what to expect, luckily my friend Genene was starting this new adventure with me.

Before coming to Ireland, we only knew where the island of Ireland is located and the types of music from the different provinces and we had seen Irish dancing on the television. During orientation we were treated to a live Irish dancing performance in the concert hall which we will never forget! It…
