Realist?

Realist

Realists are usually interested in 'things' - such as buildings, mechanics, equipment, tools, electronics etc. Their primary focus is dealing with these - as in building, fixing, operating or designing them. Involvement in these areas leads to high manual skills, or a fine aptitude for practical design - as found in the various forms of engineering.

Realists like to find practical solutions to problems using tools, technology and skilled work. Realists usually prefer to be active in their work environment, often do most of their work alone, and enjoy taking decisive action with a minimum amount of discussion and paperwork.

Why us?

We offer students a unique educational experience that focuses on academic excellence and practical application of knowledge. We have a range of programmes from apprenticeship to Level 10 (PhD) with smaller teaching groups and class sizes that ensure students get involved in group projects and a more focused learning experience.

What really sets us apart is our strong links with industry, which complement our focus on the practical application of learning. Many of our students complete a work placement as part of their degree which not only gives them the opportunity to be well prepared for the working world upon graduation but also gives them an edge with employers when applying for jobs. We also have excellent relationships with educational institutions internationally, with many of our students studying overseas for a time, giving them a better understanding of other cultures, while gaining the confidence that living away from home provides.

Of course, college is not just about academic learning, students are encouraged to participate fully in campus life. We has a diverse community of 20,000 students and every one of our vibrant campuses is located in a city-centre location, opening up a world of opportunity and fun for prospective students. 

Adjusting to college life can sometimes be difficult so we work hard to ensure first-year students know about the supports that are available to them, free of charge, from the Health Centre and counselling service to careers development and financial aid. We also run a peer mentorship programme where first-years can receive support from more senior students. For many young people, the first serious obstacles in life may present themselves when they leave the school environment and come to college. Facing and overcoming these issues will provide a learning experience just as important as their academic qualification.

This is perhaps the most exciting time to study with us as we have just established TU Dublin, Ireland’s first Technological University which is where career-focused students, dedicated staff and academic excellence in science, the arts, business, engineering and technology converge to create the leaders of tomorrow.
