About MTU Kerry

The Campus

MTU Kerry is a relatively small campus of approximately 3,500 students.  It is divided into three schools; Business and Computing, Social Studies, and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics).  We operate out of two campuses, both of which are in the town of Tralee.  Approximately 15% of our students are international.  We currently have students from Brazil, Canada, Saudi Arabia, China, Great Britain, Turkey, and all across the European Union.

The Town

Tralee is located in County Kerry in the South West of Ireland.  It has a population of approximately 25,000.  Being a small town means that everything is reasonably accessible, even for students who don’t have their own transport.  A bus service is available to transport students from their accommodation to either campus, though most accommodation is within easy walking distance of college.

“My experience in Ireland has been amazing… the culture is very warm and welcoming… both inside and outside the classroom. The international community at IT Tralee is vibrant creating many opportunities to meet new people and gain a deeper understanding of the world. I hope other student will take this leap of faith, pack their bags and head off in pursuit of further education and self-discovery.”

KB, Sir Sanford Fleming College, H&L (Massage)

“I love the experience in Ireland. The transition to IT Tralee was easier that I thought. Our lecturer’s and mates are very helpful. The town is great, it’s small, and you always meet someone you know. Living costs are not bad either, the stores are very well priced. If you have a chance to study here take it — I haven’t met anyone who hasn’t enjoyed themselves!”

RO, St. Lawrence College, Music Technology

“The experience has been great so far. The welcome from the whole faculty and community was one of the warmest and friendliest I have ever had. Tralee really puts the old saying that Canadians are the friendliest people on earth to a challenge.”

WW, Durham College, Renewable Energy and Energy Management

Overall the experience has been great. The welcome was one of the warmest and friendliest I have ever had. Tralee really puts the old saying that Canadians are the friendliest people on earth to a challenge.

WW, Durham College, Oshawa, 2015/16, Renewable Energy and Energy Management

My experience in Tralee has been nothing short of amazing. One of the many bonuses of studying in Tralee is the ease of finding students who are far from home. The international community here is very vibrant and strong

KB, St. Lawrence College, Peterborough, 2015/16, H&L (Massage)

I love the experience in Tralee. The transition to IT Tralee was a lot easier than I thought it would be. The one big change was that midterm’s and finals are worth 50%, but if you go to class, do the work the 50%’s aren’t too terrifying.

If you have a chance to study here, definitely take it.

ROB, St. Lawrence College, Kingston, 2015/16, Music Technology.

I recommend studying abroad to anyone who is interested in a challenge – it can lead to great rewards.

CL, Sir Sandford Fleming College, Peterborough, 2013/14, B.Bus (Management).

Tralee has been great! The town has everything you could need, and people are very helpful.

The Town Centre Apartments are amazing.

MS, St. Lawrence College, Kingston, 2014/15, B.Bus. (Accounting).

My favourite thing about Tralee is being surrounded by international students. It’s a unique experience to meet so many people from different countries … You learn a lot about the world just from socializing with other students.

Tralee is a small town which makes living in a new culture easier. It’s a very beautiful part of the country with lots of nice travel destinations. Living cost is similar to back home.

CB, St. Lawrence College, Music Technology.

I have been working as a cook for over 20 years having started an apprenticeship as a teenager. Never in my career have I encountered such a level of professionalism, and excellence as I have in my few weeks at IT Tralee. The expectations are high … most of the instructors have come from Michelin Star backgrounds, and I’m proud to be training under them. I look forward to learning everything I can to bring back to Canada with my BA in Culinary Arts. I am a certified Ontario Teacher, with hopes of training the next generation of Canadian cooks. This program allows for me to get a degree that they don’t offer in Canada.
