My name is Marie-Amandine Albinet and I am a French student who completed Erasmus in the University of Limerick.
In France I am doing a double degree which consists in studying both French Law and Common Law. After two years in Toulouse we all had to choose where to do our Erasmus. From the very beginning I wanted to go to Ireland because I am really into outdoor activities and nature and I was told that it was a country that would suit me perfectly! I hesitated a lot between going to a much bigger city such as Belfast or Dublin but I finally choose the University of Limerick (UL).
Why the University of Limerick? Because it is a university where you are more than just a number!
I found the university staff really nice and always willing to help students. Everything is made for you to feel good and to adapt to your new Irish life! The School of Law also played an important role in my Erasmus experience. Thanks to the Legal English workshop organised in September I learned more about how to use the different resources available for students, the library’s resources but, most of all, it was a great way to meet other international students that were also studying law! My experience in the University of Limerick made me stronger and I am now more ready than I have ever been to face new challenges in my student and personal life! Studying Law at the University of Limerick is a wonderful journey!
