Karen DelaneyAs the Admissions Officer of Carlow College I look forward to welcoming you. Carlow College is the second oldest third level institution in the country; second only to Trinity College Dublin. However, our energy is focused on the future.


Our undergraduate programmes in Humanities, English, History, Philosophy, Theology, Arts, Social Care and Community Studies are highly respected, as are our Masters programmes. Our staff are recognised for the quality of their teaching and research, and our graduates are sought after by employers. Solid academic support is provided throughout your time in the college, you are not just a number. If you are looking for a college where lecturers will know your name, then Carlow College is the place for you! Our philosophy places the student at the centre of all that we do. We care about your future.


Carlow town is a vibrant place. You can have it all in Carlow, a great education and fun times too. Check it out! Our town is small enough to get around easily but big enough to keep you entertained. Our college is located right in the heart of the town which means we are central to many of the things you may need… transport, accommodation, nightlife, sports facilities, shops, cafes, restaurants and much much more! 


All our programmes are accredited by QQI and are constantly revised to provide the very best learning experience for our students. Feel free to delve into this prospectus and see the future that is out there waiting for you.


Student life is… well, what you make it!
