When applying to university in Ireland, applicants are assessed and classified as either an EU applicant or International (Non-EU) applicant:
It is the responsibility of the applicant to provide full and accurate information in an application and to notify the University of any changes or corrections to the original application.
If you are ordinarily resident in the EU/EEA/ Swiss Confederation/United Kingdom for a minimum of 3 of the 5 years prior to registration at UCD, you may be entitled to pay fees at the standard EU rate.
If you are not, or have not been, ordinarily resident for the minimum required period in the EU/EEA/ Swiss Confederation/United Kingdom please check our exceptions section. If none of the exceptions apply to you, you must pay tuition fees at the Non-EU (International) rate.
Students who accept a Non-EU place on an undergraduate programme are not eligible to be assessed for EU fees for that course. Students may be reassessed for future courses.
If you wish to make an application for EU Fee Assessment you can do using our submission form. See our checklist to ensure you have all required documentation before submitting, as incomplete applications will be rejected and you will be required to recommence the process.
*Please note: We do not accept P60, P45, tax credit certificate or payslips as valid documentation within the EU fee assessment process. Application where these documents are submitted in place of a Statement of Liability (P21)/F11 will be rejected. Any period of residence in the EU/EEA/Swiss Confederation/United Kingdom as holder of a conditional visa (e.g. Stamp 2 or 3) is not included in the assessment of years of residence.
*All supporting documents must be in English.
