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, along with Waterford IT, a member of the Technological University of South East Ireland (TUSEI) TU development consortium, and it is envisaged that the Wexford campus would form part of a multi-campus TU in the event of its establishment.

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