Carlow, Ireland —Study Abroad
This program is offered through Globalinks at the Institute of Technology.
Ireland has recently been named by The Economist Magazine as the best place in the world to live. They said “… Ireland wins because it successfully combines the most desirable elements of the new (the fourth-highest GDP per head in the world in 2005, low unemployment, political liberties) with the preservation of certain cozy elements of the old, such as stable family and community life.”
At the Institute of Technology Carlow, every effort has been made to combine a stress-free location with top-level academic programs and facilities that are the leading edge in a number of key disciplines both nationally and internationally.
In the current academic year, the Institute has a student body of almost 4,500 and an academic staff of 200. All of this in a town of 20,000 people with healthy industrial and business sectors.
Carlow, just 80 kilometers from Dublin, is one of the largest inland towns in the country and with its strong industrial base, makes an ideal choice for the location of an Institute of Technology campus. The Institute benefits from continuous investment by the Government in the student learning environment and boasts excellent computing, multimedia, and library facilities in a state-of-the-art Learning Resource Centre. The Institute is also internationally renowned for research in the areas of Biotechnology, Engineering, and Marketing.
