I am delighted that you are considering LIT for your future. As the President of LIT, I hope you will come here for the same reasons that attracted and excited me. Many of those reasons are outlined on this site.
LIT is among the most vibrant and connected institutions in Ireland. When you look around our 5 campuses, 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.
As a student in LIT, you will find yourself at the heart of this vibrancy and activity. Each of our campuses is a community of learning, rooted in its place, and rooted in our ethos of learning together and bringing theory and practice together.
That is why LIT scores at the very top of Irish student surveys for friendliness, access to lecturers and diversity. This is something that we are very proud of.
At the same time, our programmes are developed in partnership with industry, professional bodies and the community to give you the best outcomes possible. This is part of our connectedness.
That is why students, graduates and employers consistently give us high scores for the quality of our programmes, which have an excellent employability record. More than 9 out of 10 of our graduates are in employment within 6 months of finishing their college programme.
We deliver over 120 programmes to learners through our campuses in Limerick, Tipperary and Ennis. I invite you to explore this prospectus and see if you can find a programme to fit your needs. You can be assured that if it fits your needs it is also fitting the needs of a potential employer as well.
We are very open to applications from mature students looking to return to education and if you have the right qualifications and experience you may be able to take a fast track route.
LIT graduates have been successful in every field of endeavour, from business to the sciences, technology, public service, engineering, hospitality and tourism, fashion and the arts.
Be part of that heritage, create your own success. Your journey could start here.
I wish you all the best with the decisions you have to make.
Professor Vincent Cunnane
President of LIT
