Dundalk’s IT’s ranking in the Good University guide has dropped two places since last year, according to the report published in last week’s Sunday Times.

The local third-level institute was previously sitting at 11th from last year’s listing, however this year they now rest at 13th, a ranking it hasn’t sat at since 2016.

The university was overtaken by Tralee IT (Which went from 13th to 10th), and Waterford IT (Which went from 12th to 7th).

Trinity yet again reigns king as it sits at 1st, followed in second by University College Cork and then the University College Dublin.

In terms of student satisfaction, DKIT scored a rate of 49.8%, a graduate unemployment rate of 6% and a progression rate of 86%.

DkIT's graduate unemployment rate was one of the lowest in the State, with just Letterkenny IT (13%),  Galway-Mayo IT (7%), and IADT Dun Laoghaire, with a graduate unemployment of 6.8%, scoring a worse rate.

The Institute's graduate unemployment rate has dropped since they last sat at 13th however, when in 2016 the graduate unemployment rate sat at 11%.
