Great lecturers

This is a small, intimate community with good growth. The lecturers here are very supportive and are great as a supervisory team.

As a DKIT student
Anonymous rated 3 out of 5 stars

My experience at Dundalk Institute of technology was often engaging, warm, communal and exciting at times. The lecturers always made it a priority for the students to fully grasp the topic at hand. I was hardly an active student during the classes but I always made sure I communicate to my lecturers about any issue I had with a module. Unlike my secondary school...

My opinion, the pandemic bricked this opportunity.

The University is nice, international team members it is friendly and helpful. Actually, I had not an international life while since the pandemic started. All programme was done online.
