Announcement for Electrical Engineering Apprentices

Due to the recent Government announcement of school, college and university closures in the interest of public health and as a result of the spread of Covid 19 it will not be possible for Electrical Engineering Phase 4 and Electrical Engineering Phase 6 apprentice students to complete their exams as planned. The exams will be deferred to a later date. Given the fluid nature of the public health situation SOLAS are not in a position to advise apprentices of any new examination dates currently. However, once these dates have been established apprentices will be notified as soon as possible.

In relation to the term 3 start date for apprentices, currently all term 3 apprentices have been notified of their start date. However, given the current public health situation it may be necessary to adjust this date or to defer the blocks. Further discussions will be required between SOLAS, DES and HEA on this matter, and will be based upon the most up-to-date advice from the authorities on the public health situation. Information will be made available as soon as possible.

Covid19 Remote Working Arrangements 


12th March : Update from President TU Dublin

As you are aware, all schools and colleges across the country will close for all educational activity from this evening at 6pm until March 29th, subject to review.  This has been communicated to all students and you will have received a copy of that email.  

While this means that we will be unable to continue to physically deliver lectures, tutorials, labs and exams in TU Dublin, our current intention is to ensure that the University can continue to work during this period, in so far as practicable.  All schools and functions are now seeking to implement appropriate contingency plans.  In line with the Taoiseach’s request, TU Dublin will try to facilitate remote working where possible.  Our Remote Working Policy is now available at: https://www.tudublin.ie/covid19/.  If you wish to apply, please follow this agreed policy.  

Buildings will operate summer opening hours from today.  Libraries and other campus facilities such as sports and gyms are now closed to students and other users.

Please note there is no overseas travel until further notice.  However, our International Office will remain in contact with all of our students who are currently overseas and our international students here in Ireland.

These circumstances are unprecedented as you know, and this is an evolving situation.  We will continue to provide updates for all staff and we appreciate your patience and cooperation during this period of disruption. 

In spite of the difficult circumstances we all find ourselves in globally, it is important to remain positive, follow protocols and stay well.  Please continue to check information and updates on the University website at www.tudublin.ie/covid19 and your TU Dublin email account.

Best regards,
Professor David FitzPatrick
