Payments for international students

Your full tuition fee must be paid before you travel to Ireland. We offer two payment options for international student payments.

Option 1: Pay online with TransferMate. This option is especially useful for students who require an entry visa to travel to Ireland. The Paytostudy receipt is accepted by the Irish Naturalisation and Immigration Service (INIS) for study visa applications and also during arrival at Ireland as proof of payment of tuition fees. 

Option 2: Pay via International Bank Transfer directly to our bank account. 

International Bank account details to pay your tuition fees:

Account Name: National College of Ireland
Bank Name: Allied Irish Banks
Branch: 41 Westmoreland Street, Dublin 2

IBAN: IE10 AIBK 9333 8430 9230 88
BIC: AIBKIE2D

Account Number: 30923088
Sort Code: 93 33 84

Remember to quote your name and student ID number so that we can trace your payment. 

All courses at NCI are subject to strict limits and places are only confirmed when a student pays their fees in full. Applicants should note that submission of a payment does not guarantee a place, as seats are only allocated on a first come/ first served basis. 

Once you have made the payment you are required to: 

1. Download the Payment Transfer Form  and complete it in full. 

2. Email your completed Payment Transfer Form together with a copy of your proof of payment (for example your bank transfer receipt) to admissions@ncirl.ie

This means that we can send you a receipt for your payment. Please remember that it may take five working days for your payment to reach the NCI Bank Account. Once we receive the payment into our Bank Account your fee receipt will usually be ready within three working days. 

It is the policy of NCI not to issue receipts for any payments of less than €7,500. For payments of less than €7,500 NCI will acknowledge receipt of the payment by email only. Where an applicant makes multiple payments, NCI will only issue payment receipt(s) where thresholds of €7,500 or higher have been reached.  

Payment plans

Payment plans are available to international students, but are strictly limited to those who have been living in Ireland for more than one year. Students returning to NCI for subsequent years of study will be eligible to apply for a payment plan.
