If you like working with others, and like problem solving then its definitely worth considering. Do you ever look at a bridge/skyscraper etc. and wonder how they did that? Or better still, are you looking at the way the road at home is laid out and thinking if they had of done something differently it would have been better.

Engineering is not a career people think about and say its helping people, but in many ways it is rewarding and just as much about helping people. Engineers design things used everyday that help people get to work, provide clean water, provide sewerage systems, care for the environment....

Administrative?
Administrative
Administrative people are interested in work that offers security and a sense of being part of a larger process. They may be at their best operating under supervisors who give clear guidelines, and performing routine tasks in a methodical and reliable way.

They tend to enjoy clerical and most forms of office work, where they perform essential administrative duties. They often form the backbone of large and small organisations alike. They may enjoy being in charge of office filing systems, and using computers and other office equipment to keep things running smoothly. They usually like routine work hours and prefer comfortable indoor workplaces.

Arts: A Wider Choice At UL

Course Details header image

Find out about what it's really like to study Arts at the University of Limerick with our Blog brought to you directly from students of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences.  

At the University of Limerick, we deliver an Arts Degree which is flexible and wide-ranging, offering 19 subjects in all. You can study a combination of subjects (as Single Honours or Joint Honours) from across the Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences: from familiar arts subjects such as English, French, German, or History, to newer subjects such Drama and Theatre Studies or Linguistics with TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages).

In the course of your study you will have opportunities - unique to the UL curriculum - to work, to travel, and to study abroad.

You will study Arts at UL because:

  • You want to choose from a wide range of subjects at an institution where you can benefit from real-world work experience and can live and study in another country;
  • You want to engage with fresh ideas;
  • You wish to communicate your own ideas effectively and persuasively;
  • You want to engage critically and analytically with the world around you;
  • You want to develop skills that will enhance your career and, in the broadest sense, your contribution to society.
  • You can choose from a set of fourteen subjects taught at the University of Limerick, to which we have added the possibility of taking one of your subjects - Geography, Mathematics, Philosophy, Drama and Theatre, or Theology and Religious Studies - from our partner institution, Mary Immaculate College.
