We believe in adventures at IADT. We believe in new beginnings, new ways of learning, and new friendships. In discovering what independence means. Here, our pioneering approach to education creates individuals who understand how to realise their ambitions and aspirations, and how to make their mark.
IADT is unique. We are Ireland’s only institute of art, design and technology with a specific focus on the creative, cultural and technological sectors. When you visit IADT you’ll discover a campus alive with ideas, innovation and entrepreneurial activity.
Programmes in both the Faculty of Film, Art + Creative Technologies and the Faculty of Enterprise + Humanities are unique in that they combine practical, transferrable skills with academic learning. And because we believe in being active in research and practice, our students get to work with fantastic staff, many of whom are internationally acclaimed in their fields. Our fresh, modern campus in Dún Laoghaire is currently home to over 2300 students and staff. With outstanding facilities and a lively, friendly atmosphere, we know you’ll feel at home here too.
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, 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, access and welfare, 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.
We offer accredited courses at undergraduate and postgraduate level, accredited part-time short courses and extra-mural courses (including portfolio preparation courses).
