We look forward to welcoming many new students to Carlow for the first time in September. Many students coming to Carlow for college will be renting accommodation from landlords. As always when doing any business online, try to ensure that the source is trustworthy.
Books, journal articles or dissertations that are not available in the IT Carlow library may be requested from another library using the ILL service. Registered lecturing staff, final year and postgraduate students can submit an ILL request form which is available at the library desk. Requestors will be notified by email when the requested item has arrived and is available for collection.

IT Carlow is a farce. The course structures are totally disorganised. Little to no learning material is provided by lecturers and they just refer you to Google. The modules do not work with eachother, for example; every lecturer expects you to know material from another module that wasn't even covered. CAs and tests are done in a lazy manor which do not properly reflect...
IT Carlow is a brilliant college. Class sizes are smaller than other big universities allowing lecturer engagement with students to help learning and one-on-one time is also made possible, while classes are still sizeable enough so that it still has that college feel. Students and lecturers are friendly too!!!
My overall time in IT Carlow has been an enjoyable and fruitful one. The majority of my lecturers are extremely enthusiastic and genuinely interested in the subjects. However, I feel there definitely could be some room for improvement when it comes to feedback. Lecturers make it impossible to have a quite word with them and (some) don't take fair criticism very well.
