New students starting in 2021

First year undergraduates have been delayed by 1 week because of the late release of Leaving Cert results. They will have registration and orientation on the 23rd and 24th September, and start lectures on 27th September. This will reduce the number of teaching weeks for first year students to 11 for the first semester.
