Popularity of technological universities in Ireland on the rise

Technological universities' popularity in Ireland is rising following the release of data by the Central Applications Office.

Overall, applications for technological universities were up by 5-6% in 2023, with traditional universities seeing a small dip.

There are five technological universities in Ireland, all formed within the last four years following a change in Irish government policy to create stronger higher education institutions with greater scale and impact. TU Dublin was Ireland’s first technological university, followed by Munster Technological University, Technological University of the Shannon, Atlantic Technological University and South East Technological University.

These technological universities offer a range of undergraduate and postgraduate courses, as well as research opportunities and partnerships with industry.
