As you plan for your future, choosing a higher education college and programme of study are two of the most challenging and important decisions you will make. I am therefore delighted that you are considering the Institute of Technology Carlow.

With 6,500 learners, 40,000 alumni pursuing successful careers in all walks of life, an outstanding learner-focussed faculty with global perspectives, a modern and dynamic campus, and an outstanding reputation for sporting achievements and facilities, we are pleased to be recent recipients of The Sunday Times Institute of Technology of the Year.

The Sunday Times Institute of Technology of the Year accolade acknowledges our achievements across a range of higher education, postgraduate and research categories, while also emphasising our proud reputation for putting the well-being of our learners at the heart of everything we do since our foundation 45 years ago.

I invite you to explore the many opportunities available to you by reading our prospectus, by visiting our campuses at Carlow and Wexford, and by visiting our website where you can find out more about what our learners and graduates have to say about us.

I am confident that you will learn that IT Carlow is truly an exceptional place, with a strong community environment that supports you in achieving your highest professional and personal potential.

Our ethos of ‘knowledge in use’ means that we work very closely with employers to maintain the relevance and quality of all programmes. Many of our programmes bring our learners into direct contact with professional practice through work placements, clinical placements and simulations, ‘live’ projects for industry and community organisations. This translates into programmes of study and internationally recognised qualifications across a range of discipline areas that are very relevant to real career opportunities in the employment marketplace; present and future.

There are many reasons for going to college; pursuing a deep interest in the chosen discipline area, the opportunity to significantly improve career prospects, the chance to experience a different way of life and the prospect of making new friends and memories that will last a lifetime. Choosing our Institute will change your life and that of those around you.

Our many graduates across the Sciences, Computing, Engineering, Business and Humanities discipline areas possess the intelligence, attributes and passion which continue to transform our society and the world we live in. You can be one of them.
