The Right Courses

We offer the full range of higher education qualifications, including Bachelor degrees, Honours Bachelor degrees, and post-graduate Masters and PhD degrees. CIT has a very well developed 'ladder' structure to enable students to progress through the different levels of qualifications.
CIT offers 76 courses through the CAO. Forty-three of these are on the Honours Degree (Level 8) list. It's important to note in addition that there are thirty courses on the Bachelor Degree Level 7 list which have routes of progression to Honours Degree courses at CIT.
CIT is one of the most highly rated higher education colleges in Ireland, both in terms of facilities and in the great student-staff relations due to small class sizes.
CIT’s excellently prepared sports grounds and facilities played host to numerous competitions throughout the year including schools’ matches, International Cork City Sports, GOAL Mile, Munster Schools & Universities Cross Country Championships. CIT provides training facilities for a number of teams including the Cork Minor Hurlers and Footballers, Cork Ladies Footballers, and is now the training base of the Cork Senior Hurlers.
