The University of Limerick (UL) offers a number of undergraduate and taught postgraduate educational and training programmes that require students to undertake placements with external agencies. Such placements may bring the students into contact with children and vulnerable adults and require them to assume positions of trust. To ensure the protection of the public and justify public trust and confidence, UL is committed to ensuring that only suitable candidates are allowed to undertake these programmes.
In accordance with the National Vetting Bureau Acts 2012-2016 and UL’s Student Vetting Policy, there is a statutory requirement for all students on programmes that include a placement involving work with children or vulnerable adults to be vetted.

From Sept. 28th onwards, all students should submit their original vetting documents to the Student Vetting dropbox which is to be located in the Reception area of the Main Building.
