The Centre for European Studies


The University of Limerick has long been noted in Ireland and internationally as a centre for excellence in teaching and research in European Studies

The University pioneered the development of European Studies at the undergraduate level in Ireland and launched the first MA in European Integration. It is a mark of the high regard in which the University is held by the European Union that it has received funding for three Jean Monnet Chairs in the area of European integration. The Centre for European Studies was designated a Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence in 1999. Faculty in the European Studies area are involved in many EU-funded research programmes and networks which make the University a highly Europeanised environment in which to work.
