The recent winter conferrals at the University of Limerick saw the graduation of five Saudi Arabian students with Masters of Laws in International Commercial Law and Masters of Laws (General). Among the students graduating were Ahmed Alharbi and Abdulrahman Aloufi from Medinah and Nasser Alhamami from Najran. A number of the students, who had graduated with their undergraduate law degrees from the Islamic University in Medinah and Qassim University, completed both a pre-Masters course and their Masters study in the School of Law and thoroughly enjoyed their international education experience in the University of Limerick.
Ahmed Alharbi, who completed a Masters in International Commercial Law, explained: ‘I gained a great knowledge from my study thanks to the lecturers who were so experienced. And the facilities at the University were such a help. I really enjoyed getting involved with other cultures and making many friends from around the world. During my study at the University of Limerick, I participated in many activities, on and off campus. I was also the vice-president of the Saudi Students Club in Limerick city. This gave me great self-confidence.’ Summing up his experience, Ahmed concluded: ‘Life in Ireland was very enjoyable and, with the support of my family and the University, it was a very encouraging place to study in. I feel that this journey in Ireland will be a highlight in my life.’
