Degree completion opportunities for Colleges Ontario students
Waterford Institute of Technology (WIT) in cooperation with Institutes of Technology Ireland (IOTI) is very pleased to offer degree completion pathways for Colleges Ontario (CO) students on Bachelor degree programmes.
WIT is unique in the IOTI network as it has a longstanding relationship with many colleges in Ontario and has been involved in student and staff exchange for many years with Centennial College and Humber in Toronto and Fanshawe College in London, Ontario. WIT also has active exchange partnerships with Memorial University in Newfoundland and the University of Fraser Valley and JIBC in British Columbia.
Under an agreement signed between IOTI and CO in 2011, graduates of two-year college programs in Ontario can study for an honours degree with two further years of study in Ireland. In some cases, graduates of three-year programs will be able to secure an honours degree with one further year of study.
Applications are now invited from Colleges Ontario graduates who wish to pursue honours degrees in all disciplines.
Tuition fees/Ontario Student Assistance Programme (OSAP)
For Colleges Ontario students, tuition fees for our undergraduate programmes are €7,500 for the academic year 2017-2018 ($11,000 CAD approx).
WIT is an Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP) approved institution.

Why not Ireland?
When exploring where to finish your undergraduate degree, why not choose Ireland!?
The people are good ‘craic’, the scenery is beautiful and the opportunities for travel and adventure are endless!
Waterford IT provides an excellent learning environment for all students. The international office helps to make the transition from Canada to Ireland seamless and easy. They are always planning events and creating fun ways to help integrate all international students.
Not only is the international office planning events, but the clubs and societies at WIT are constantly recruiting like- minded individuals for weekend getaways and daily activities. Whether you are into kayaking, swimming or football (soccer), you are sure to meet people from all over and make friends that will last a lifetime.
Waterford itself is located in the 'sunny south-east' which is close to amazing beaches, rocky cliffs, classic Irish scenery (sheep and cows) and surfing on the coastline.
Finishing my undergraduate degree at WIT has opened numerous doors, one of which had me working for a marketing company in Ireland. If you are looking for an opportunity to see Europe, meet people from around the world and finish off your schooling…look no further!
My top 5 favorite memories while in Ireland…
1. Meeting people from across the globe, making connections that will last a lifetime
2. Getting involved with Education Ireland as an International Ambassador and having the opportunity to meet the Education ministry and the Irish President, Michael D. Higgins.
3. Exploring Irelands beautiful countryside and taking weekend getaways all over Europe.
4. Playing pick-up soccer almost daily with people from all over the world
5. Partaking in the numerous International Society events and activities.
