I’d say... CIT is a good college, u can have a laugh with your lecturers, the classes are small so u get to know everyone unlike UCC where they might be 200 in your class and it’s hard to make friends mi sister said as everyday like u meet someone new and can’t always sit by your friends. It’s difficult, where as in CIT you may have 200 in your year of business but 40-50 in your class so u know everyone whether you talk to them all or not. It’s a sporty college too. It’s fun. And if you’re a girl it’s even better cause there sooo many lads to look at, haha, even though that shouldn’t be the main reason to go, your education should be and what not.

Dont judge a book by its cover like i was doing before i came here. Just because its an IT does not mean UCC is better. The courses and lecturers are brilliant. The one main difference and i have heard this from many a UCC student is youl feel at ome much faster in CIT because its just a friendly atmosphere and everybody helps everybody. You cant speak highly enough of the societies and sports facilites. Two stadiums and a million pitches. Discount rates at leisure world. Two gyms of top class quality tennis courts, astro!! The list goes on and on. And as for societies there are a ton of them something for everyone.
