|What is the latest health guidance for Ireland on COVID-19?
||You can find the latest health and travel advice on the Irish Department of Health website. We advise that you check this regularly before making any travel plans as this is an evolving situation and advice is constantly changing.
|Is the university or ISC open?
||In the light of the current situation within Ireland, we have taken a decision to suspend classes at UCD International Study Centre with all teaching and learning continuing online until further notice.
We will be sharing specific information with all students on how to use and access your learning online so please keep checking your emails and look out for this guidance.
Should you wish to contact a member of the Welfare Team, Student Services or progression support staff please contact them via email directly.
