Limerick Institute of Technology, twice named ‘Sunday Times University Guide’ Institute of the Year, is home to over 6,500 students across five vibrant campuses in Limerick City, Thurles, Clonmel and Ennis. A further new campus is being developed at Coonagh in Limerick to cater for LIT’s rapidly expanding student population and will become a centre of excellence in Engineering education.

As you look around LIT, you will see an astonishing diversity of programmes and people exploring new ideas, pursuing new knowledge, creating new art, and filling our workshops, studios and labs with the vibrancy that comes from being an institution that is committed to discovery and creativity and in choosing LIT, you will experience a truly rich and diverse educational experience.

LIT is the only Institute of Technology to have been twice named Sunday Times ‘University Guide’ Institute of the Year, in 2009 and 2013.

Just a few of the many great reasons to choose LIT…..

Active learning. Students learn by doing at LIT. We combine practice with theory offering students an experiential model of learning. This equips you with essential skills you can take into your chosen career.

Small class sizes. As a student in LIT, you will not get lost in the crowd. Our small class sizes allow for greater participation and discussion in lectures.

Access to lecturers. All LIT campuses are a tight knit community of learners where students have easy access to lecturers whether you meet them on the corridors, in the canteen, or for scheduled meetings, which are easy to organise.

Employable. LIT graduates are highly employable. Not only will you graduate from LIT with a recognised degree relevant to your field of study but thanks to our practical approach to learning, you will also possess the necessary skills and experience employers look for.

Support. LIT provides an extensive range of support services for students, designed to assist you to reach your full potential and enjoy your college experience. Our ‘Engage’ Orientation programme for incoming first year students gives you the tools you need to successfully navigate college life. During the first weeks of term, our Student Leaders are on-hand each day to provide advice while you find your feet and give you all the information you need about campus life, clubs and societies and how to access supports.
