My Department does not have a role in these arrangements or the placement of students enrolled on these courses. During the course of the programme, students are required to undertake placement in different services, including the National Educational Psychological Service and the Health Service Executive. The placement arrangements and conditions are a matter between the higher education institution and the relevant body.

The Department expects institutions to manage these matters appropriately and fairly.
