Say hello to the mamas
When the Four Mamas founded API together more than 20 years ago, they dreamed of creating high-quality, safe, life-changing study abroad programs they would feel good sending their own kids on. With dedication, hard work, and a lot of love, their dream became reality. Thousands and thousands of students have chosen API to support them on their own life-changing study abroad experiences, with the Four Mamas cheering them on every step of the way. No matter who you are or where you come from, API will support you on your journey.

Limerick City is located in County Limerick and is the capital of the Shannon region. The city was founded by the Vikings in the 10th century, making it the oldest chartered city in Ireland. Cultural opportunities abound in music, art, history, and dining. Students of music can find the Irish World Music Centre housed at the University of Limerick. Art and history students can explore King John’s Castle and the internationally important Hunt Museum. Limerick is also known as “Sports City,” with excellent sports facilities and plenty of opportunities to participate in and watch Irish sporting events. Located two and a half hours west of Dublin, Limerick is well-situated for exploring other parts of the country. The beautiful west coast of the country, Mountshannon, the Burren and the Cliffs of Moher are all easily accessible.
API students who choose to study abroad in Limerick attend the University of Limerick (UL). Established in 1972, the university has gained a reputation among Irish schools for excellence in academics, innovation and course organization. A wide range of courses is available, including Arts and Humanities, Sciences, Economics, and Technology. The university houses the renowned Irish Chamber Orchestra and the Irish World Academy of Music and Dance. Students have free access to excellent university sports facilities (the largest indoor sports complex in Ireland), as well as the opportunity to join university clubs. The university supports over 70 social and athletic clubs that provide wonderful opportunities to get to know local students. Students are housed in on-campus student villages with both foreign and Irish students. These opportunities allow API students to truly integrate as a part of the UL campus during their stay.
“I'm very glad that I chose to study abroad with API. The staff was always helpful and easy to approach. The organized trips really enhanced my study abroad experience."
