DCU statement on invasion of Ukraine

As stated by our President Daire Keogh on Twitter, “DCU colleagues and students from Ukraine and the broader region are suffering unimaginable anxiety due to the Russian government’s invasion of Ukraine and DCU condemns this unjustifiable aggression."

Dublin City University is closely monitoring the situation in Ukraine and the associated advisories issued from the European Commission, the Department of Foreign Affairs, the Higher Education Authority, and our institutional partners.

Currently DCU does not have any students studying abroad in Ukraine or Russia.  

We do have students on placement across a range of European countries and we do expect these study placements to continue as planned. The safety and security of our students and staff is always our top priority, and we will continue to closely monitor the situation and advise students accordingly.

We would also like to reach out to all of our staff and students from Ukraine and Russia at this very difficult time recognising that their families and friends may be directly impacted by the conflict. There are a range of supports available on campus (contacts below) as well as the support of colleagues and friends in DCU.
