Tell me about the Institute of Art, Design and Technology (IADT)
There are 2,149 full-time and a smattering of part-time students, with the vast majority taking Level Eight degree courses, and a good gender split. The college has an excellent reputation for animation, film and television production, design, model-making and visual communication.

It also offers applied psychology and English, media and cultural studies. It is home to the new National Film School, scheduled to open in November 2013.

Why change to IADT?
– As institutes of technology go, this place is utterly unique. There’s a strong creative and entrepreneurial vibe running through the college,
influencing everything from the courses to the lecturers and the projects through to the student life.

Most students have a really wonderful experience.
– The creative arts programmes are hugely popular, very well regarded and generally oversubscribed, usually a very good sign.
– It’s an open-minded and friendly kind of place, and it was voted as the sexiest college in Ireland in a College Times survey last year
Why not change to IADT?
– The suburban setting on the edge of Dún Laoghaire means the college is quite isolated and a bit of a trek for anyone who isn’t on the right bus route.
– Although there is tremendous craic to be had on campus, and a good mix of clubs and societies, students won’t find as much extracurricular fun as in larger institutions.
Most popular CAO courses in 2012
Film and Television Production, Design for Stage and Screen

What courses have declined in popularity?
Business courses.

IADT in three words
Imaginative, lively,
