University of Sanctuary Initiative

In 2017, the University of Limerick was designated a University of Sanctuary in recognition of initiatives welcoming asylum seekers and refugees into its university community. As a University of Sanctuary we focus on enabling access to third level through a number of financial support plans and programmes to aid with the transition to University. We also seek to become a key driver in raising awareness of particular issues impacting on the lives of refugees and asylum seekers, as well as promoting a spirit of inclusion and welcome in the University, the city of Limerick and beyond.

Under the initiative, we invite you to help support bursaries for refugee or asylum-seeker students.
