Union of Students in Ireland (USI) Levy

The USI membership levy is €7.00 This Levy is not covered by a SUSI grant and must be paid before the Start of Semester 1.

 

 

EU Tuition Fees

Many undergraduate students attending publicly funded third-level courses do not have to pay tuition fees. Under the terms of the Free Fees Initiative, the Government will pay these fees to the colleges instead.

Students undertaking a second undergraduate course, non-EU students, students studying by ACCS mode and students taking a year of a course for a second time (i.e. repeating a year/ level) may be liable for tuition fees.

Students who have previously attended another third level course must complete a previous college form and submit it to the fees office so we can determine your tuition fee liability.
