Institute of Higher Education
Institute of higher education offering courses and a broad range of information for over 3000 students from over 31 countries.
LYIT is a lively and inspirational place that attracts a creative mix of 3,000 students both from the local area and from 31 different countries. This gives us a vibrant array of cultures and activities on campus and a friendly, supportive and relaxed atmosphere where students and staff work closely together.
Our modern integrated campuses in Letterkenny and Killybegs encourage strong academic learning and career-focused practical experience. We have excellent facilities in all departments, such as a suite of graphic design studios, state-of-the-art nursing resources, special purpose laboratories, training kitchens and restaurant, and an on-campus business development centre, CoLab, to support spin-off enterprises. Our multi-purpose centre, An Dánlann, houses our excellent sport and recreational facilities in addition to our medical centre, counselling service, careers office and chaplaincies.
We are deeply committed to the people in our region. Part of our mission is to help raise the economic prospects of the young people who study with us and by doing so, the prosperity of the wider communities into which they will graduate. That’s why every course we offer teaches the latest knowledge and skills that employers demand.
