TUSE Waterford

Since 2018, €56 million has been spent on Technical University projects throughout Ireland. Of that, the Technical University of the South East (TUSE) has only received €8.1 million, or 14% of the total budget. Much less than funds allocated to either Dublin, Cork or Galway, all of which are regions with existing universities.

These figures don’t capture the historic underinvestment in the Waterford campus that has prevailed over the years. I hope that now that we have a dedicated Minister and a dedicated Department that we in this government can reverse the inequalities of the past and of previous governments as we deliver a first class TUSE for Waterford

I spoke about this in the Dáil. You can see the full speech here:
