GO DO BE at DIT

Why go to DIT?

A world of opportunity awaits you at DIT. By combining small teaching

groups, great programmes, experienced teaching staff and buzzing city

centre locations, you will soon see why DIT is the best place you can go

to college. We offer programmes from apprenticeship to PhD in a range

of disciplines, including business; sciences; health; hospitality; culinary

arts; law; social sciences; engineering; built environment; performing and

creative arts.

What will you do?

What really sets DIT apart is our strong links with industry, which

complement our focus on the practical application of learning. Many

DIT students complete a work placement as part of their primary degree

which not only gives them the opportunity to be well prepared for

the working world upon graduation but also gives them an edge with

employers when applying for jobs.

DIT also has excellent relationships with educational institutions

internationally, with many of our students studying overseas for a time,

giving them a better understanding of other cultures, while gaining the

confidence that living away from home provides.

Who will you be?

College is not just about academic learning and DIT students are

encouraged to participate fully in campus life. DIT has a diverse community

of over 20,000 students, and every one of our vibrant campuses is located

in a city-centre location, opening up a world of opportunity and fun for

prospective students. DIT has more than 120 student-led societies and

sports clubs with something for everyone, including the arts, fashion,

photography and music. Sport is hugely important at DIT and students

benefit from excellent facilities at our Kevin Street, Grangegorman

and Broombridge campuses and choose from a range of sports clubs

including, soccer, yoga, basketball, tennis and scuba-diving.

NEW CAMPUS

Grangegorman Campus Development

In April 2018, building work began on the East and Central Quads in our

new campus in Grangegorman which will accommodate 10,000 students

by September 2020. Grangegorman is an historic area of Dublin City

Centre, just 1km from O’Connell Street, and only sixteen minutes from St.

Stephen’s Green on the Luas.

The East Quad will be a Cultural Hub not only for the Grangegorman

campus but also for the city. From September 2020, it will be home to

four Schools which are currently spread across our campuses in Aungier

Street, Kevin Street, Rathmines and Grangegorman:

  • Dublin School of Creative Arts
  • School of Media
  • Conservatory of Music and Drama
  • School of Languages, Law and Social Sciences

Designed to support the artistic work of students and staff across all

creative disciplines, the East Quad will facilitate exhibitions of students’

visual artwork as well as dramatic and musical performances in the 400-

seat Concert Hall, 80-seat Black Box Theatre and 80-seat Recital Hall.

Students can also use external spaces for performances, media projection

and exhibition of sculptures.

The Central Quad is situated at the heart of the Grangegorman campus.

With a vast floor area of 35,000 square metres, it will be home to the

College of Sciences and Health, the School of Electrical and Electronic

Engineering as well as the Schools of Culinary Arts and Food Technology,

and Hospitality Management and Tourism, representing the following

disciplines:

  • Biological Sciences
  • Chemical and Pharmaceutical Sciences
  • Computing
  • Food Science and Environmental Health
  • Physics and Clinical & Optometric Sciences, including the National Optometry Centre
  • Electrical and Electronic Engineering
  • Culinary Arts and Food Technology
  • Hospitality Management and Tourism

Highly specialised laboratories and learning centres will provide a worldclass

learning environment for students and researchers while substantial

breakout areas will be available on every floor to allow students to gather

in small groups to discuss project work. Large lecture spaces, including

a 250-seater main theatre, are clustered on the ground floor alongside

training restaurants and hospitality facilities so that students can enjoy a

range of dining options.
