The Sunday Times University Guide has described Letterkenny IT as the most improved college in the country, and runner up in the Institute of Technology of the Year category.
In its annual assessment which has been published today, the guide praises the college for its retention rates, which have gone from being among the worst to the best in the country.
Last year, Letterkenny I.T. was 18th in the league table of irish colleges, this year, it is ranked 10th, the biggest improvement of any college in the country, and now second only to Dublin in the I.T. rankings.
The guide recognises that Letterkenny has upped its game across the board, with a staggering improvement in retention rates. Last year, it had a drop out rate of 25%, this year, the drop out rate is just 1%, the lowest in the country.
The guide recognises the ongoing parking problems in the vicinity of the college, with parking facilities set to be developed on a 10 acre site opposite the main building.
