About

History

IADT as we now know it came into being in 2012, when three existing Schools were amalgamated to become two Faculties: the Faculty of Enterprise + Humanities, and the Faculty of Film, Art + Creative Technologies. However, our unique story is deeply rooted in the area and dates back well over fifty years!

Education

From full-time undergraduate and postgraduate programmes to accredited part time courses, IADT has earned the reputation as Ireland’s leading creative cultural and technological institute by consistently providing innovative, practical and relevant courses.

Research

Cutting-edge research significantly enhances the creative and entrepreneurial environment at IADT.  We work with diverse stakeholders and collaborators in the public and private sectors, at local, national and global level.  IADT engages in scholarly, applied and practice-based research.

Career

  • The IADT Careers Centre is here to help and support students and graduates in their career planning and research. As Careers Officer I am always happy to meet with students individually or in class groups.
  • You can make an appointment to discuss your career plans, to have a vocational assessment done, or to look for specific information relating to your discipline or area of interest.

Review of college
Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

I am attending the Dun Laoghaire Institute Of Art Design + Technology in Dublin, Ireland. This is the second time I am attending the college. I attended originally 2010 - 2014 where I received my Level 8 BA Honours degree in visual arts practice. I now have returned to college to study a MA Level 9 Art and Research programme with the objective to gain more credits in order...

Lovely people and staff, studies to be improved
Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

Really small and cozy campus, lecturers are lovely and easy to talk to. Classes themselves are lacking a bit in structure but staff takes complaints seriously and does its best to change what's not going well. Access to editing software necessary to do work outside of campus would be great. A lot of fun when you're surrounded by like-minded people.

Studying at IADT
Provided by ESN rated 4 out of 5 stars

IADT is a small college but this just means smaller classes, which I've found to be great, as you get more interaction with lecturers and basically a more hands on learning environment.
