Fees & Funding


Coming to Ireland as an international student is a big financial commitment, and before you start on a programme of study at NCI you need to consider carefully your financial expenses and living costs. Also, it is worth remembering that, evidence that you can support yourself and any dependents is a condition of gaining entry clearance into Ireland.


Tuition fees cover the cost of your study and include charges for registration, tuition, supervision, examinations and graduation.

Payment of fees will also entitle you to membership of the library, the Students' Union and the SV Fitness Gym.

To provide you with certainty in your financial planning we have fixed tuition fees for new international students for the duration of their course.

Any offer of a place at NCI is made on the understanding that you have sufficient funds to pay for your tuition fees and your living expenses for the entire duration of your period of study. Fees vary for each course.
