IT Sligo Makes Top Ten Ranking in Good University Guide


IT Sligo Makes Top Ten Ranking in Good University Guide

IT Sligo has made top ten in the Sunday Times Good University Guide released yesterday (Sunday 1st of November).  The guide contains Ireland’s only league table that measures the performance of all 19 multi-faculty third-level institutions.

The Times University Guide uses a range of measures, including student satisfaction with teaching, spend per student and graduate employment prospects, to rank institutions across the country.

President of IT Sligo, Dr Brendan McCormack welcomed the result:

“We are delighted to be in top 10 in the 2021 Good University Guide.  The ranking reflects our focus on ensuring the highest quality learning experience for our students and our ambitions to become a Technological University with our Connacht-Ulster Alliance partners.”

Dr Brendan McCormack added: “The guide is used by students across the country to help choose which third-level they should consider. The high ranking is down to the commitment and dedication of the incredible team we have here in IT Sligo who always go beyond the call of duty to ensure our students get the best possible experience.”

IT Sligo was highly commended by the Sunday Times guide for its ability to quickly move learning remotely during the pandemic crisis and was ranked number one for most flexible learning.  The Institute was also recognised for its increase in First class and 2.1 degrees last year.

This is the second high ranking achievement by the Institute who celebrate 50 years in operation.  During the summer, IT Sligo was ranked 4th best performing university in Ireland by U-Multirank, the largest global university ranking experts.
