With links dating back to 1887, the Dublin Institute of Technology has a long and proud tradition of providing education to the highest levels combining the academic excellence of a traditional university with career-focused learning. Publicly-funded, the DIT is a member of the European University Association and offers an extensive range of undergraduate programmes at Bachelor Degree levels and postgraduate programmes at Taught Masters, Research Masters and Research PhD Degree levels.
With more than 20,000 students enrolled on full and part-time programmes and over 1,000 international students, the DIT is one of Ireland’s largest and most innovative institutes of higher education.
Strong links and regular interaction with industry and the professions allow the Institute to base its teaching on the latest global trends. With over 300 different programmes across its 4 colleges, and 25 Schools DIT offers a diverse range of specialised programmes, in some cases programmes unique to DIT, and often created and adjusted to meet the current industry needs.
The DIT adopts the most up to date learning and teaching practices and encourages all academic staff to undertake ongoing training in Academic Communication, New Technologies, Promoting Student Engagement and Enhancing Academic Practice. This is all delivered through our dedicated Learning, Teaching and Technology Centre.
The DIT also boast an excellent student-staff ratio with average class sizes of 35 students. As well as a dedicated International Student Experience Officer in the International Office, all registered students have access to dedicated support services to help them personally as well as academically through their degree in DIT. In its recent international student departure survey 98% of International students agreed that DIT Lecturers were helpful and friendly.
Located in the heart of Ireland’s vibrant capital city of Dublin, DIT’s six city centre locations provide students with easy access to a wealth of amenities, entertainment venues, and cultural attractions. The OECD ranks Ireland among the top ten countries in several topics in the Better Life Index.
“Over the last one hundred years many things have changed in Ireland and around the globe. It is important that we all develop opportunities to share our views and experiences, and that our students develop an understanding of, and an empathy with, other cultures. Therefore, we feel this is a very appropriate moment for us to launch our DIT Centenary Scholarship Programme to encourage excellent candidates from around the world to apply to undertake postgraduate studies at Masters Level in DIT.
I am delighted to announce that we will now offer 60 scholarships for excellent international students to undertake their Masters studies in our four Colleges (Arts & Tourism, Business, Engineering & Built Environment and Sciences & Health) for the academic year.”
The scholarships will cover one-half of the value of fees for the academic year. The scholarship is only available for DIT’s fulltime, taught Masters (Level 9) programmes. It is not available for postgraduate diploma or certificate programmes.
The scholarships are open to applicants from any non-EEA/EU countries. We are encouraging the applicants from the following countries to ensure a more diversified student population:
- Brazil (applicants must have completed a year of study in any Irish higher education institution under the Sciences without Borders programme)
- China (including Hong Kong and Macau)
- Republic of Korea
- United States of America
Applicants must complete and submit the Centenary Scholarship application form, on or before the close of business of the set deadline.
Applications MUST be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Applications will be assessed by an academic panel in each College to determine suitability of the candidate. The panel may also select reserve candidates. The decision of the panel is final.
Successful applicants will be notified by email from the International Office and will be required to accept the offer within two weeks. Failure to accept within this time frame will be deemed as declining the scholarship.
