IT Carlow has made a substantial investment in the student facilities in its Wexford Campus. Modern computing and library facilities have been developed and students also have access to the software and databases on the IT Carlow Campus. Online access to business and educational databases through the IT Carlow library website provides students with excellent research facilities to assist them in their project and continuous assessments. This infrastructure, together with the small class sizes in Wexford create an excellent learning environment for students to reach their potential.
In addition to the physical environment there is a dedicated lecturing staff in Wexford. Lecturers are available to their students formally through our tutorial structures and informally as required. Many of the lecturers are also involved with our student clubs and societies and our sports teams.
