Fees, funding and scholarships

Money matters

We have included information below on graduate fees, as well as some of our most prevalent scholarship schemes. You can also view information on the top funding institutions and current individual funding and scholarship opportunities at the University. Student excellence and achievement are recognised in UCD through a variety of scholarships and awards, which celebrate the diverse talents of our students. Many of these awards are highly regarded by employers and industry.

Money <strong>matters</strong>


Graduate students at UCD are liable to pay fees, including the Student Centre Levy to the University. In addition, students must budget for their own maintenance (including accommodation).
