Galway-Mayo Institute of Technology (GMIT) has been named Institute of Technology of the Year in the 2022 edition of the Sunday Times Good University Guide

The Galway-Mayo Institute of Technology offers Undergraduate, Postgraduate and Lifelong Learning opportunities for aspiring higher education students. Learning is and will be the core activity of the Institute, bringing students, staff and the region together to share, apply, test and create knowledge.

GMIT won Institute of Technology of the Year title based on multiple achievements this past academic year (2020/21) including

  • TU designation approval,
  • academic restructuring,
  • collaboration with business and industry in the development of new courses and facilities,
  • high levels of student engagement,
  • a four-place rise in the overall rankings,
  • the awarding of the coveted Athena SWAN Bronze accolade.

Commenting on the success of GMIT, Alastair McCall, Education Editor, Sunday Times, says: “ It is a double triumph for Galway with GMIT carrying off the Institute of Technology of the Year award for a fourth time, just weeks after the announcement that it is to become a Technological University in 2022 in partnership with Letterkenny and Sligo institutes of technology. The development and ultimate success of that project, coupled with a four-place rise in this year’s league table, helped GMIT to the prize.

“GMIT embodies everything good about the institutes of technology. Outstanding business and industry links translate into good employment options for graduates, while high levels of student engagement are evidence of an institution in tune with its undergraduates. With Technological University title to come next year, the future is looking rosy for GMIT. Our award is recognition of the effort that has gone in to get the institution to this point and of our expectation that this is just a springboard to further success.”

GMIT President Dr Orla Flynn says: “This welcome recognition highlights the huge commitment of all our staff who consistently strive for excellence in teaching and learning, in research and in our engagement with enterprise. We enter 2022 – the golden jubilee of our establishment – with the aim of becoming a technological university with partners IT Sligo and Letterkenny IT and delivering even more for our students and many stakeholders across the region and beyond.” is a national database of universities, colleges, institutes and providers of third level, CAO and PLC courses in Ireland. We operate a national search database of courses and colleges.
