Dublin City University Exchange Program
Each summer one KU Chemistry major is selected to spend 10 weeks performing intensive research at DCU, while we provide the same opportunity for a chemical sciences major from DCU.
Please note: the 2021 KU Dublin City University REU Exchange Program has been canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We expect the program to be reinstated for summer 2022.
Please also note that the COVID-19 pandemic may affect the 2021 Exchange program, including room and board specifications, travel restrictions, social distancing and face covering requirements, and other safety protocols within the labs. We will keep you up to date with any COVID-19 related changes to the program as we receive them.
