Education is now available at first, second and third levels on the campus of St Michael’s College in Dublin.
Dublin has now joined Rome as only the second European country to host the overseas programme of Duquesne University, the United States only Spiritan university.
With the arrival of 12 students this month, St Michael’s College on Ailesbury Road will operate as an education support centre and residence for up to 21 students of the US based university.
Duquesne students will study for a semester in local universities with all of the current batch attending classes in UCD, as well as pursuing one course in Irish history on the Spiritan campus.
Welcoming the development, Spiritan Provincial Fr Marc Whelan said he is “delighted that first, second and third-level education components all now co-exist on one Spiritan campus”.
