From September 2020 Entrance Scholars will be able to obtain an apartment on campus for their first year (normal charges apply).

Eight students studying the Froebel Bachelor in Education degree were recognised on the night for their Leaving Certificate achievements. Among the other popular courses represented were the Arts and Science (with Education) degrees.
