Fees - Undergraduate

Do I have to pay fees? 

All students are required to pay the Student Contribution Charge of €3,000 for 2017/18, unless awarded a grant by Student Universal Support Ireland (SUSI) If you have received a letter confirming your grant eligibility from Student Universal Support Ireland (SUSI), you may be exempt from paying the student contribution charge of €3,000. In some cases SUSI may only award a percentage of the contribution charge making you liable to pay the balance. If you are liable to pay tuition fees (not eligible for free fees), SUSI may or may not pay these fees on your behalf, so it is very important you check this with SUSI. 

If I don’t qualify for a maintenance grant, what fees will I have to pay? 

If you do not qualify for a maintenance grant, you will be liable to pay the Student Contribution Charge. For academic year 2017/18 this is €3,000. The tuition element of your fees will probably be paid on your behalf, provided you are eligible under the ‘free fees scheme’ for Level 6, 7 and 8 programmes.
