College/University Membership

The Institute of Designers in Ireland has, since it was founded in 1972, valued and supported the nation’s design educators in fostering the next wave of creative talent.

We were asked by lecturers and students to come up with a programme to allow design faculties to reap the benefits of IDI Membership.

From 2015, colleges and institutes of design can apply for College/University Membership, giving each of its design lecturers, members of staff and the student body access to full benefits of individual IDI Membership.

For more information, please feel free to get in touch.

Below is a list of current IDI College/University Members.
