Art and Design (and much more!) in Ireland

Are you familiar with the Limerick Institute of Technology?

LIT is based in the Midwest of Ireland in Ireland’s third largest city. Even so, the city is much more affordable than Dublin.

If you are considering why you should study in Ireland, the EU´s largest English-speaking country, here are some good reasons:

  • world-recognized for excellence in education;

  • Ireland is a member of the European Union;

  • it is home to many of the world’s most successful globally-traded companies;

  • Ireland is one of the safest countries on earth;

  • international students have a minimum of 12 months post-study work permit;

  • students can work part-time (20 hours per week).

Limerick is globally recognized by UNESCO for learning excellence; almost half of the population is under the age of 35.

LIT is on track to be recognized as a Technological University and offers an active learning, practical approach to study.

What is LIT known for?

The institute has a faculty of business and the humanities, a world renowned school of arts and design, a faculty of applied science, engineering and technology, as well as several post graduate programs.

Class sizes are small, and most programs have a work requirement - there is a strong partnership between the institute and industry.

The application process is quite straight-forward and well explained on the LIT website.
