The process to secure a location for a higher education campus in Wexford, which is being led by IT Carlow, is ongoing. IT Carlow is a member of the Technological University For South East Ireland (TUSEI) consortium, and it is envisaged that the Wexford campus would form part of the multi-campus TU. 

My Department has agreed in principle to provide funding for acquisition of a site for the new campus.  I can confirm to the Deputy that both IT Carlow and my Department remain fully committed to the development of higher education facilities in Wexford.
