Do I have to pay fees?

Student contribution

An annual student contribution (€3,000 in the academic year 2017/18) is payable by all full-time undergraduate students. This fee, subject to change from year to year, includes an examination fee and is payable for each year of study.

All students are required to pay the Student Contribution on registration. Students who receive a grant will have this charge refunded. Those in receipt of 'Back to Education Allowances' may qualify for an exemption from the student contribution. An application under the Higher Education Grant Scheme to cover the cost of the student contribution must be submitted to Student Universal Support Ireland (SUSI) through or

Tuition fees

Currently, EU nationals (subject to residency requirements) attending full-time Ordinary Degree and Honours Degree courses are not normally required to pay tuition fees. However, non-EU nationals must do so. 

If you are an EU national and have already attended a third level institution, you should be aware that this may affect your entitlement to free tuition fees and maintenance grants. The general principle, with some exceptions, is that you will only receive financial support once for a given stage/year of study.

Tax relief

Tax relief, at the standard rate of tax, may be available for tuition fees and student contributions paid in respect of approved third level courses. It is intended that families who pay student contributions for more than one student in a year will be able to claim tax relief on the second and subsequent contributions. For details on this please see

Rate of fees

The rate of fees is determined each year and is subject to change. The rates are normally available by the end of August. The 2017/18 Course Fees can be accessed via this link /content/files/Fees_2017.2018.pdf

Can I avail of any grants?
