Waterford Institute of Technology is one of the largest institutes of technology in Ireland. It was established as a Regional Technical College in 1970, and was the first to be awarded Institute of Technology status in 1998.

The Institute now confers its own awards at all levels from Higher Certificate to PhD, and has the highest number of students within the Institute of Technology sector, outside of Dublin, participating at ordinary degree level and above.

The Institute also offers unique post-doctoral programs in a number of specialist areas. Being the major provider of higher education in the South East region of Ireland, the Institute’s current full-time equivalent student cohort is in excess of 7,500 while part-time student enrolments exceed 2,500. The range of academic programs is exceptionally extensive covering the Humanities, Health and Nursing, Science and Informatics, Engineering and Architecture, Business and Education.


College Campus at Waterford consists of 69 Single En-suite rooms. These apartments are located on the Main Campus with easy access to all WIT services and facilities. College Campus is located on the West side of the city, on the grounds of the Main Campus of WIT.  It is on a direct bus route into the City Centre.


Waterford is located two minutes’ walk from College Street Campus & fifteen minutes’ walk from the Main Campus. City Campus is located on the Cork Road in Waterford City approximately two minutes’ walk from College Street Campus, 15 minutes’ walk from the Main Campus and 10 minutes’ walk from the city Centre.

 I sincerely thank SI-UK for getting me accepted to UCL. The MSc in Urban Development and Planning is extremely competitive, but the right guidance provided by SI-UK made my dream of studying at University College London a reality. The services were exceptional from beginning to end.
