Open your mind and create your own future at IADT

The time spent in Higher Education is an important and defining time in your life. It is a period that allows you to reach your potential in your chosen area of study, to meet people, to gain new experiences and to make choices about your future path. You are setting ambitious goals for yourself and for your future.

IADT is unique in Ireland. It is one of the 13 Institutes of Technology, but the only Institute of Art, Design and Technology. We specialise in creativity, entrepreneurship and innovation in the digital age set in an educational environment that values the whole student experience.

IADT is committed to providing programmes and training that foreground the skills that are needed to meet the needs of the industry and help move Ireland into the next stage of its development. Key industries to focus on include event and arts management, gaming, animation, film, cultural tourism, digital media and psychology and technology. Key also is the production of entrepreneurs with the skills to develop new and innovative companies. IADT has the curriculum range to produce students that will meet the needs of these industries; from designers and creative practitioners to film makers, animators, story tellers, cultural theorists, technologists, psychologists and enterprise development specialists. IADT graduates have been successful nationally and internationally in the Creative and Cultural Industries, in the Sciences and Arts, Technology and in the Business World.

IADT offers students opportunities to develop ideas and projects in a cross disciplinary manner and to work with students from other programmes and disciplines. We have created a dynamic and vibrant environment where we encourage a pioneering approach to learning.

We offer a learning environment that caters for students as individuals. Small class groups and a project-oriented approach ensure a high level of learning support. We are committed to developing you as an individual, as an independent thinker who can think deeply and critically about the world and make a valuable contribution to it.

IADT offers you opportunities across the traditional boundaries of practice, space for engineers to work with graphic designers, for business people and entrepreneurs to work with fine artists and psychologists, for poets to work with photographers and technologists.

Our unique, high quality and focused programmes offer students excellent opportunities to prepare for their future careers – wherever you go, whatever you do.

Our programmes are located in two Faculties:

Enterprise and Humanities, with programmes focusing on the world of business in the knowledge, media and entertainment sectors.

Film, Art and Creative Technologies, offering programmes that blend creativity and technology in art, design and media, and that explore the interaction of people and technology – including the internationally recognised National Film School.

IADT is part of the European Erasmus exchange programme, offering you the opportunity to study part of your programme in a European institution. We currently have exchanges with universities and colleges in the UK, France, Spain, Portugal, Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany, Finland, Estonia, Turkey, Hungary and Sweden.

A comprehensive range of advice and support services (counselling, career guidance, assistive technology, writing and research, etc) are available to help you make the most of your time in IADT.

IADT also has excellent library, computing, studio, sports facilities, and a wide range of clubs and societies to help you enjoy the social side of studying in Higher Education.

IADT also offers extra-mural courses in the summer and autumn, including portfolio preparation courses (if you are thinking of applying to programmes in our departments of Design and Visual Arts, and Film and Media), and a wide range of part-time certificates and postgraduate programmes.
