Applicant Connection App


As part of its strategy, the University of Limerick aims to increase the number of international students. To support this strategy
ITD’s Business Engagement Partner worked in conjunction with UL Global and Academic Registry to facilitate the UL Global request (via Tender).

The service comprising of an online platform will connect UL Offer-Holders (for example students going on Erasmus to another University or coming into UL) with peer Offer-Holders, current students, staff and alumni.
The service provided by the successful tenderer could be availed of by any Department of the University of Limerick that is resourced to implement the service. ITD’s involvement in the tender ensured compliance with best practices and followed UL’s Enterprise Architecture Principles and IT Security Policy.
