Full Time Undergraduate Fees
Student Fees comprise of the following three elements:
- Student Contribution Charge
- Union of Students in Ireland (USI) Levy
- Tuition Fees
Student Contribution Charge
The Student Contribution Charge for the academic year 2020/2021 is €3,000 this is an annual charge which is set by the Government for all full-time third level students.
Students can apply to Student Universal Support Ireland (SUSI) for a grant which, if approved, may cover 100% of the Student Contribution Charge. For information on Grants please click below.
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.
The following are the tuition fees for 2020/2021

|Higher Certificate (Level 6)||€250|
