Letterkenny Institute of Technology has a cross-institution partnership with Lasell College, Boston that allows students from both colleges to expand their international experiences by travelling abroad and taking courses at each institution. The partnership offers students in Business, Communications, Education, Graphic Design, Hospitality and Sport Management the chance to directly enrol in the US Institute.

"There has been a long-term effort by County Donegal and Letterkenny to build relationships with the Boston area. They were looking for connections with institutions of higher education [like Lasell]," said Lasell President Michael B. Alexander.

Letterkenny IT is delighted to sign this agreement with Lasell College.  The initial connection was made by Donegal County Council at a previous Golden Bridges Conference and it was fitting that a delegation from the Council was present at the signing of the agreement at this year’s conference.  It was particularly significant that the Mayor of County Donegal, Frank McBrearty was in attendance.
