*Self-Funded students are defined as students that are not availing of a full or partial fee scholarship or sponsorship from any source.
 

The value of the Scholarship is for the full academic year or €500 per Semester, therefore, students will be liable for the balance of €2,250 each Semester + €7 USI levy in Semester 1.

STUDENTS FUNDED UNDER A RESEARCH PROJECT.

The postgraduate office will notify the fees office where students are funded through a specific research project. In such cases students may only be liable for the €7 USI Levy which can be paid online through Self-Service Banner

 

STUDENTS IN RECEIPT OF A SUSI GRANT

SUSI will notify the University directly if you have been awarded a grant and we will update your account so please note your initial fees may change.

SUSI Grant Renewals

If you were in receipt of a SUSI grant in 2021/2022 for year 1 and are progressing in your education we will assume your grant will be renewed at the same rate. Your fees balance at the start of the year should reflect this. Therefore, your balance may be €7 or the total fee less the amount SUSI awarded in 2021.

If your grant is not renewed by the 31st October the full fees for the year will be re-applied to your account and payment for Semester 1 will be due within 7 days.

 

SUSI Grants – New awards for the current academic year: 

Students who have applied for a grant and are awaiting approval should pay the €7 USI levy before the start of term. 

Students still awaiting grant approval at 31st October should pay the balance of the fees due for Semester 1. If a student is subsequently awarded, a refund will be processed. 

Students awarded €3,500 (€1,750 per Semester) are liable for the balance of fees due in each semester where the Fees exceed the amount of their grant award.

Where a student has overpaid, a refund will be processed.

 

IMPLICATIONS FOR LATE PAYMENT OF FEES

Where students fail to pay their fees on time their access to IT Services and exam results will be blocked and they may also incur an additional 10% late payment fee.

Students will be notified by email to their student A/C before any restrictions are applied.

 

WITHDRAWING FROM A COURSE

Students who wish to withdraw from a course must notify the Admissions Office by completing the online withdrawal form. Where students fail to inform Admissions of their withdrawal they will remain liable for any unpaid fees on their accounts.
