Firstly, I would like to give a very warm welcome to the incoming 1st year students! You are beginning the best four years of your life here at the University of Limerick! I would also like to welcome back existing students!
My name is Alison Fitzgerald, I am from Limerick and I am your Vice President/Academic Officer for the coming year. My role involves working as part of a team with our President (Cian Quinlan), Welfare Officer (Peadar Collins), VP for Communities (Chelsea Joyce) and all of the amazing staff here at UL Student Life representing the students at local, national and international levels. We promise to do our very best to provide you with the best university experience possible.
My role is to represent the students on various university committees such as Academic Council and Academic Regulations Committee. These committees discuss a wide range of academic issues. The feedback from students is extremely important for these committees as it shapes the future of the university academically.
My job is to represent you and provide you with the assistance you may need in relation to a broad range of academic issues. These include; Exam Results, Repeat Exams and Grade Rechecks, Academic Progression, Issues with your Lecturer/ Tutor/ Course, Changing Course.
Essentially, I am here to help and guide you with anything that affects your academic experience. I am also here if you just want to call in and have a chat.
