NEW DELHI, MARCH 18: The registrations for Ireland's first technological university, TU Dublin, have now commenced for September 2019 intake. Interested Indian students can start applying for their preferred course.

The university offers over 200 programmes across disciplines including Creative and Performing Arts, Humanities, Built Environment, Engineering, Business, Sciences and Health, Tourism, Food and Sports, TU Dublin is the only university in Ireland that offers a number of specialized programmes such as Optometry, Human Nutrition, Transport & Logistics, Horticulture, Environmental Health and Tourism Marketing.

The university has come in place after three Dublin institutes of technology were disestablished to create the new unitary TU Dublin. The merger has created an inclusive and open learning experience offering pathways to graduation from apprenticeship to PhD level to a diverse range of students. 

Dr Robert Flood, Head of International Affairs said, “The establishment of TU Dublin is a once in a generation change in Ireland’s Higher Education landscape and carries the opportunity to create a step-change in engagement, innovation and enterprise within the regional socio-economic environment.” 

“We look forward to the welcoming students and academic partners to this pioneering university, where our students, staff and societal partners will collaborate on academic programmes that will prepare Ireland’s skilled graduates of tomorrow," he added.

Barry O’Driscoll, Senior Education Adviser, Education in Ireland said, “We are proud to announce the establishment of TU Dublin, one of the largest third- level educators in Ireland. The university provides an inclusive and open learning experience offering pathways to graduation, from foundation to undergraduate to PhD, to students from all over the world.”

The emphasis of the TU Dublin student experience is on practice, with a range of opportunities in the curriculum applying theory to real-world challenges through problem-based learning, active citizenship, work-placement opportunities, project work, active learning, community-based learning, research, and engagement with contemporary practitioners.
