IT Tallaght to become a Technological University in 2019

IT Tallaght Dublin

In the Summer of 2018, An Taoiseach Leo Varadkar TD announced that the alliance of the Institute of Technology Tallaght, Dublin Institute of Technology and the Institute of Technology Blanchardstown is set to become the first Technological University (TU Dublin) in Ireland in 2019.  The Tallaght campus of the University will continue to be an important centre for high quality education, research and training in our region, where inclusive and open learning experience pathways to graduation from apprenticeship to PhD level will be available to a diverse range of students.

TU Dublin is positioned at the convergence of the arts, business, science and technology, and will strengthen the Greater Dublin Region and its prominence as a location that encourages and supports knowledge advancement, sustainable development and inclusive education. TU Dublin will continue to provide career focused, enterprise informed, relevant higher education programmes and research to prepare our graduates for the workplace in their chosen disciplines. As graduates, they will also have the skills to adapt and grow in their careers to succeed in an ever changing and developing environment. The first graduates of Technological University Dublin (TU Dublin) will receive awards from the new University in 2019.


Free Springboard Courses in Computing, Data Analytics, Digital Marketing and Pharmaceutical Technology, commencing in September 2018.

 The springboard+ upskilling initiative in higher education offers free courses at Certificate, Degree and Masters level leading to qualifications in areas where there are employment opportunities in the economy. The majority of courses are part-time for a maximum of 12 months and are open to all eligible applicants regardless of their employment status. All courses lead to qualifications in enterprise sectors, which are growing and need skilled personnel.  Springboard+ is co-funded by the Irish government and the European Social Fund as part of the ESF programme for employability, inclusion and learning 2014-2020.
