First Seven Weeks

The University of Limerick runs a unique support programme dedicated to helping first year students adjust to third level from orientation week through the first seven weeks of semester. Launched in 2010, the First Seven Weeks programme is designed to provide strong, enhanced and targeted support to students from the start of their university experience.

The First 7 Weeks Hub (located in the Students Union Courtyard) is open 9am to 5pm, 5 days a week during the first seven weeks for students to drop in ask questions, get advice and receive support.The activities of each of the seven weeks are designed around a theme which focuses students' attention on various issues that are important for settling in and thriving as a higher education student. For example; study skills, time management, health & wellbeing, developing critical thinking, writing skills, civic engagement and volunteering.
