In the 1960s, Ireland was characterised by a small elite system of higher education, catering almost exclusively for professional and public sector employment. The Mulcahy Report recommended the establishment of a number of Regional Technical Colleges around the country, highlighting that Irish people generally did not have the opportunity to become technically skilled.

GMIT is a very nice and good college. My study experience is very good I live attending this college and lecturers are very helpful with everything
My overall study experience at GMIT is really great, everyone is so helpful and friendly. Before covid the face to face interactions were better and I found it easier to learn in that atmosphere. With it being all online now I find it really tough and I have no motivation to do it from home because you can literally do it from your own bed which isnt great.
It was good experience with great learning, loads of information and ways to research and get documents. Although some lectures where longer online due to Covid 19 it was more challenging to sit on the laptop for long hours as I had lessons 9am-6pm. However it went well and was a learning experience to also learn the IT skills that we used daily
