Undergraduate Fees

Full Time

In accordance with a decision of the Government of Ireland, full-time undergraduate Irish/EU students will not be required to pay tuition fees. Tuition Fees will be paid in respect of EU nationals who have been resident in an EU Member State for at least three of the five years preceding their entry to full-time undergraduate third-level courses at National College of Ireland. Each student's eligibility must be determined on an individual basis.

Students entitled to free undergraduate tuition fees are required to pay a contribution fee to cover the cost registration and student services including Students’ Union, clubs and societies, student support and library services among others. The fee breakdown is as follows:

  Student Contribution Gym Charge Total
a. Student with an approved SUSI/Local Authority Grant: 80 80 
b. Student with no grant: 2,500 80 2,580

This fee is payable by all non-grant aided students. If a student is awarded a grant and presents a grant approval letter at registration, they do not have to pay this fee. Students who have applied for a grant are required to pay this fee if they don't subsequently receive grant approval.
