Dublin Institute of Technology named "Best Institute of Technology in Ireland" for the fourth year running by The Sunday Times

02 October, 2005 

The Sunday Times University Guide, published annually, rates universities in Ireland, Scotland, Wales, and England. Irish universities and Institutes of Technology were rated  following independent analysis of a range of criteria including grades, retention, research, student services, access for students who are socio-economically disadvantaged, and contribution to development at local and national levels.

The results of the Sunday Times analysis placed Dublin Institute of Technology at the top of the league table as the 'Best Institute of Technology' in Ireland. DIT also ranked very highly based on specific criteria, including best student/staff ratio (second place), and the fact that over 55% of DIT students achieve a first or a 2.1.

DIT was praised for the "widest range of courses on offer in Ireland" and its "convenient city centre locations".

The Institute was also singled out for incorporating community service in to certain modules and for the fact that DIT is the only Institute of Technology with its own degree awarding powers, a status it achieved in 1998.
