It is the first time that the publication has given the prestigious annual award to more than one Higher Education Institute, and is in recognition of “the fact that all three now stand on the cusp of a new joint venture.” Amongst the highlights of the coverage in the Sunday Times Good University Guide was a striking photo taken by DIT Product Design student Donal Healy where he captured his DIT Photo Society colleagues as they explore the quirky side streets and narrow lanes of Dublin City for the perfect photo opportunity.  

Announcing that the TU Partners would receive this important accolade, Alastair Campbell of the Sunday Times Good University Guide said, “For the first time in its history, The Sunday Times Good University Guide has jointly awarded the Institute of Technology of the Year award to three institutions: Dublin, Blanchardstown and Tallaght ITs. The joint award recognises the three institutions that will together form the new Technological University Dublin (TU Dublin) from January 1, 2019.

The new joint venture represents the biggest change in Irish third-level education in a generation, instantly becoming one of the largest third-level educators in the country, with some 28,500 students. A huge building programme is currently underway, and once complete Technological University Dublin will be spread across three campuses, at Grangegorman (DIT), Tallaght (IT Tallaght) and Blanchardstown (IT Blanchardstown).”
