Record Applications to Tipperary Institute (LIT Tipperary)

Following a record intake of students in 2010, Tipperary Institute has recorded an impressive increase in applications again this year. Figures recently released from the Central Applications Office (CAO) show an astonishing 32% increase in applications from students to The Tipperary Institute this year.

Furthermore, Tipperary Institute recorded a massive 50% increase in first preferences for its courses, in spite of a national reduction in the overall applications to the CAO this year. Over the last three years, the numbers of students accepting places at Tipperary Institute has more than doubled, making the local Institute one of the fastest growing third level colleges in the country.

Tipperary Institute has been incorporating into LIT since December 2009 and following a Government decision in June 2010 will integrate formally with LIT on 1st September.

Mature learners continue to return to education in large numbers and applications from PLC students to Tipperary Institute have also increased by 20%. This year, the Institute will make more places available than ever before to cater for the growing demand for third level education locally.  The fantastic growth in applications includes the BSc. (Hons) in Games Design and Development which has had a bumper year with first preferences up by 77%; while acknowledgement of the important role played by community based organisations has seen a 21% increase in applications for Tipperary Institute’s Social and Community Studies Degree.
