What the students say

I just love the atmosphere especially at lunch time there is always something going on in the canteen. The music is great and always puts everyone in a good mood. Everyone is so friendly and its just a great college to attend.

I would recommend IT Sligo as it is an up and coming college with a new science block on the way (although the one we have is grand!) with lecturers that put in time with you and answer any questions you may have!

IT Sligo is the best college in the West of Ireland. It is small, i.e, in comparison to say bigger colleges/universities. This has advantages: smaller lectures, smaller tutorials, more direct access to lecturers, library not crowded, canteens not crowded, and a better choice of good quality accommodation. IT Sligo are World achievers: think 'Team Hermes', they bet off over 300, thousand competitors to take the Microsoft World cup - fantastic. The research element is very strong at IT Sligo. Many students go on to do Masters and PhD's. Facilities for researchers are second to none. IT Sligo is accessible by rail and by road, both offer very good services. There are ample parking places if you drive. There are Sports scholarships, Sport is high on the agenda. There is a racing track; an all weather, well lit sprots field and the massive Knocknarea Arena offering numerous sports, too many to list here. It is new and exceptional. You must see it to believe it. Shops, cafe's and large canteens are plentiful. The Students Union is active, exceptionally helpful and very strong, staff are exceptionally friendly. Administration staff are all helpful and the office is open at suitable times to accommodate students needs. 'You cannot fail under the shadow of bare Ben Bulben's Head'
