Written answers (Question to Education)

I can confirm to the Deputy that the Code of Governance for Irish Universities was endorsed by the Council of Presidents of the Universities in January 2019 and approved by each governing authority by 5 April 2019. Following approval, effective from the 2019-20 academic year, a gap analysis and a work programme is been undertaken by each university to support the implementation of the Code.

The revised Code, which is available on the Irish University Association's website, www.iua.ie, replaces the previous Code of Governance for Irish Universities 2012.
