Located in the North West of  Dublin City, ITB is a state-sector college which is funded directly by the Irish government.  As a relatively new institution, ITB has excellent modern facilities and provides a wide range of courses which lead to internationally recognised awards.

ITB offers a caring environment with personal access to its highly qualified staff. At ITB, we realise that some of the most important decisions we make in our lives are those to do with education. Education is part of a bigger picture, and everyone’s experience and expectations of education are different. The changes to society and employment caused by technology mean that we need to have flexibility, adaptability and a positive attitude to change. ITB has responded to these changes by creating a suitably dynamic, innovative and flexible learning environment.

Education opportunities at ITB cover a broad spectrum – business, computing, engineering, horticulture , languages, creative digital media and social studies. What all courses have in common is that they all aim to produce graduates to meet the human resource requirements of leading-edge, high-technology industries.

If you’re looking to take the next step in your education and to meet the challenges and opportunities it brings, then we think you’ll find what you’re looking for at ITB.  Click on the link below to see a video of ITB created by students of creative digital media


Combining an ideal location close to Dublin city centre with an excellent reputation for academic quality, ITB is a popular choice with students from Ireland and overseas.   Read on to see what some current ITB students have to say!


I am Jean-Michel Bounnheuang and I did my Business Studies on the Erasmus Exchange programme here in ITB. Ireland is an English speaking country and I heard from last year’s Erasmus students that it was brilliant. I found the Irish to be very welcoming and very open minded….Jean Michel – Erasmus Student



I was studying Commerce in Nepal and I wanted to continue on the same  course. I was applying to agents and they told me that Ireland is good, that there’s a good lifestyle here and the people are very friendly. College is very nice, lecturers are very good, friendly and co-operative . I use moodle too, sometimes if i can’t come in I use it to study at home instead….Mingmar Sherpa – Higher Certificate in Business student
