6th October 2022

Dear Colleagues,

As part of Budget 2023, the Minister for Further and Higher Education, Research, Innovation and Science introduced a reduction in the Student Contribution for Undergraduate Free Fees Students of €1000.
All full-time undergraduate students who are Free Fees eligible and registered for the 2022/23 academic year are eligible for the reduction.

SOLAS Apprentices are also eligible for a reduction of 33% in their fees for 2022/23.

We are in contact with the students but I am aware they have been asking Academic and  Support staff for information in relation to their fees.
The following is a brief update:

The Fees office are currently working on updating students accounts and processing refunds as a result of the announcement.

  • The fees office have updated all Apprentice fees and students who overpaid online were refunded last week.
  • Full-time undergraduate students who are eligible for the reduced fee had their accounts updated this evening.
  • Students who overpaid by Bank Transfer have been emailed a refund form.
  • Students who paid online will be refunded within the next 7 – 10 days. There is a significant volume of refunds to process.

Please note the €1,000 reduction does not apply to the following students:

  • Part-time Students
  • Postgraduate Masters and PhD Students
  • Undergraduate Repeat Students
  • Undergraduate ACCS Students.
  • Undergraduate students who are liable for Tuition fees as a result of Previous attendance at 3rd Level.
  • Springboard / HCI / ICTS Students
  • Students in Year 5 of an Integrated Masters Programme.

Should you have any further queries please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Kind Regards

Carmel Kelleher
Student Fees Office
