Student Contribution and Student Centre Levy charges


Student Contribution 2017/18

If you are eligible under the Higher Education Free Fees scheme you will have to pay the Student Contribution; the 'free fees' scheme will pay the other element of the published programme fee.


Student Centre Levy

All students are also liable for the Student Centre Levy. This levy is €254 in 2017/18. The combined payment is therefore €3,254.

If you are not eligible for 'free fees' you will have to pay the full fee rate. You will find a full listing of Undergraduate and Graduate fees at the following links:

Fee Payment Dates

The Department of Education and Skills sets and approves the composite fee in July each year. The Programme Fee published on our website is the composite fee plus the Student Contribution and the Student Levy.

The Student Contribution will be paid in respect of students who get approval under a third level grant scheme. For continuing students who already have a grant this will be through their County Council or VEC. For students commencing in September 2017 this will be through the higher education grants agency SUSI. Please refer to the following link for further information http://www.studentfinance.ie/
