Altogether more than 60 School of Business students were recognised for their academic achievements during the 2018/2019 academic year at the School of Business 17th Annual Recognition of Awards Ceremony. This Ceremony recognises continuing students with outstanding academic achievement in their previous year.

Recognition of student effort and excellence is something the School of Business continually does. These top performing students can influence others to achieve their potential as peer role models, and the recognition represents a mark of excellence to be included in recipient’s curriculum vitae.

The awards were called by the course leaders and presented by the Head of School (Dean) of Business, Dr Thomas O’Toole.

In a speech he said: “The students on the Dean’s list are among the highest achievers nationally and internationally. Their quest for academic excellence is underpinned by their commitment and enthusiasm for their programme of study and bodes well for their future careers.”

Recently released data on secondary ‘feeder’ schools to universities, institutes of technology, and colleges shows WIT continuing to feature as the leading provider of higher education across the counties of the south east.

WIT ranks number 1 in attracting students through the CAO from across the five counties in the south east of Ireland – Waterford, Wexford, Kilkenny, Tipperary (South Riding), and Carlow.

Over 1,600 of the 5,000 plus new higher education-going students in the region in 2019, or almost 1 in 3 (30%) chose WIT.

In Kilkenny (26%) and South Tipperary (27%), 1 in 4 students go to WIT.

When it comes to individual counties, well over 50% of higher education-going students from Waterford choose WIT.

The data shows something similar in Wexford where 30% of higher education going students go to WIT.
