Welcome to the Education Awards

Recognising excellence in the third level education sector in Ireland.

Launched in 2017, the Education Awards recognise, encourage, and celebrate excellence in the third level education sector on the island of Ireland from both State and privately funded institutions.


After a hugely successful event in 2021, we are delighted to announce the return of the annual in-person Education Awards in 2022.


This year we have heard incredible stories about the success of Ireland’s institutions, large and small, in continually improving and innovating their educational processes in an ever-evolving environment; these awards aim to recognise and reward the most outstanding achievements within the sector over the past 12 months.

We encourage you to make note of the 2022 event date in your calendar:

​Tuesday, February 22nd, 2022 @ Clayton Hotel Burlington Road, Dublin

We also invite you to take part in the awards by entering one of our award categories.
