Mr. Tim Conlon:
The HEA and a subcommittee of our board met them in recent days to talk about the funding allocations they are looking for in order to build the project. They assure us they are in very good stead and we think they are in a good position. We expect they will be in a position to make a formal application by September 2018, looking towards assessment and likely designation some time in 2019. Their intention is to be functioning as a technical university and enrolling students in September 2019.
