The University of Limerick, Mary Immaculate College and Limerick Institute of Technology  have come together to form a regional Higher Education partnership under the title “Shannon Consortium”.

The Shannon Consortium is a dynamic group of institutions actively working together as equal partners to coordinate and develop specific innovations in the region.

Established in 2006, the Shannon Consortium encapsulates institution-wide co-operation across a diversity of HE activities. Since its establishment, a regional approach to outstanding teaching, learning and learner support has been developed in order to create a zone of excellence in teaching and learning at third and fourth level.

Inter-institutional shared-service projects between our three Centres for Teaching and Learning now include:
