Welcome to Carlow College
If you’re looking for somewhere different to attend college, somewhere that will welcome and challenge you, somewhere you will grow as a person and have fun along the way, you need to think beyond, you need to think about Carlow College.
Carlow College, St. Patrick’s, is Ireland’s second oldest university-level institution. Founded in 1782, we have a distinguished history as a college of teaching and research in the Humanities.
We welcome students from all backgrounds and abilities. Our emphasis is on enabling students to engage with their chosen course and achieve their goals. Our graduates demonstrate flexibility, critical thinking, cultural awareness, creativity and communication skills.
