TU Dublin, formerly, Dublin Institute of Technology, is a premier technological institute in Ireland with a long history of research and innovation.

TU Dublin is the largest higher education institution in the State with almost 28,000 students and over 3,000 staff.
TU Dublin believes in smaller teaching groups and class sizes, meaning a more focussed learning experience. Industry placements and a focus on practice means that career opportunities will open wide for you the moment you walk through the door as well.
TU Dublin has more than 800 researchers tackling the challenges of 21st century life and the new research innovation hub at Grangegorman promotes research in a culturally driven international environment. TU Dublin is a full participating member of the European University Association and the International Association of Universities in addition to the many links with international academic institutions and world-class companies.

A wide range of accommodation is available for TU Dublin students. Student residences at Grangegorman include six and three bed housing apartments, family units and private studios. Currently, the institute only provides assistance and information to students seeking accomodation partnering with various accommodation providers all across the city.
Currently all TU Dublin campuses are located in the City Centre of Dublin, one of Europe’s liveliest capital cities. Dublin is a small vibrant city divided into the Northside and Southside by the River Liffey. Dublin Airport is 15 minutes away from the institute’s campus and is accessible by various modes of transport including taxi and bus. However, TU Dublin is a signatory of the Smarter Travel Charter and encourages students to use sustainable means of transport to commute in and around campus such as cycling and walking.
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.
