Creative?

Creative

Creative people are drawn to careers and activities that enable them to take responsibility for the design, layout or sensory impact of something (visual, auditory etc). They may be drawn towards the traditional artistic pursuits such as painting, sculpture, singing, or music. Or they may show more interest in design, such as architecture, animation, or craft areas, such as pottery and ceramics.

Creative people use their personal understanding of people and the world they live in to guide their work. Creative people like to work in unstructured workplaces, enjoy taking risks and prefer a minimum of routine.

About Us

Carlow College is situated in its own grounds on an eighteenth-century parkland and is known locally as St. Patrick’s College. As such, Carlow College is ideally located in the heart of Carlow town. With Tullow Street only one hundred meters away our students have access to banks, shops, food outlets and a wide variety of social venues on the doorstep. 

Carlow College is proud of its long history and it maintains its strong tradition as a student friendly campus where students and lecturers work together to create the optimum atmosphere for student and personal development.

Over the years Carlow has educated generations of politicians, priests, writers and public officials who were leaders in the society of their time. Today's students find employment in education, community work, the civil service, media and the social care field. A high percentage of our students proceed to postgraduate studies in the fields of Philosophy, English, History, Theology and Social Studies.

The College has partnerships with Carlow University, Pittsburgh, St. Ambrose niversity, Davenport, Iowa, the Illinois Consortium for International Studies and Programs (ICISP) and with Trinity College Dublin.
