University College Cork has introduced a Student Debtor Policy. Students must pay their fees by the notified dates. A late fee penalty applies in all cases where fees payable by the student are paid after the notified payment date. It is the responsibility of students to familiarise themselves with the the University's regulations, which cover student fees, payment dates and registration procedures. Liability for fees rests with the student for the duration of their course. Students with outstanding fees will not receive details of examinations or examination results, and will not be permitted to progress to the next year of their studies.

SUSI applicants/grant holders - Fees payable for 2016-17 


Paying fees when registering

For First Year Undergraduates only, if you have been awarded the full SUSI grant or you are still waiting on approval, pay the Capitation Fee of €165 on-line, and bring your documentation from SUSI to Registration Part 2.  Then a Student ID card can be issued to you.  If subsequently, you are deemed ineligible for a SUSI Grant, please pay €1,500 immediately, and the balance of €1,500 in full by the 31st of January 2017.

For Progressing Undergraduates, if you are still waiting for your grant to be renewed, then pay the first instalment of €165 online when registering.  If you have subsequently been declined the full grant, please pay the balance of the first instalment, €1,500 immediately and note that the second instalment must be paid on or before the 31st January 2017. 


For Postgraduates, if by the time of Registration Part 2, you have not been awarded a SUSI grant, pay half of your Tuition fee on-line and bring your documentation from SUSI to Registration.  For those who have been awarded a grant see instructions re paying fees in Registration email sent to you (Step 11. Fees Payment of 1st instalment), and bring your documentation from SUSI to Registration Part 2.  Please note the following:  Any outstanding fees that the student is liable for must be paid by the 31st January 2017.


Undergraduates:  How much must I pay?

Undergraduate students eligible for 'free fees' and the full SUSI grant are only liable for the Capitation fee of €165 (payable online when registering for the academic year)

Undergraduate students eligible for 'free fees' and a grant for 50% Student Contribution must pay €1,500 + €165 = €1,665 (€915 payable when registering online and the balance on or before the 31st January 2017)


Postgraduates: How much must I pay?


If the student is awarded the Postgraduate Fee Contribution, this means that SUSI will pay €2,000 toward the Total fee.  Therefore, the student is liable for the balance of the fee, half of which is payable when registering online for the academic year and the other half is payable on or before the 31st January 2017.

For a student awarded the grant for Postgraduate Tuition fees only, SUSI will pay fees up to a maximum of €6,720.  Therefore,  if the Total fee is more than this amount, the student will be liable for the balance, half of which is payable when registering online and the other half must be paid by 31st January 2017.


Note:  Only when the amounts payable, when registering at the beginning of the academic year are paid, can a Student card be issued.

The following Statement has been released by the Irish University Association in response to the news that the United Kingdom will be leaving the EU:

In the period of uncertainty following the recent UK referendum to leave the European Union, the Irish universities collectively wish to reassure all UK students currently enrolled in an Irish university that they will continue to enjoy the same conditions as other EU students regarding fees and contributions, for the duration of their degree.

The Irish universities also confirm that UK applicants planning to enter an Irish university in 2016 will likewise enjoy these same conditions as other EU students for the duration of their degree.

As previously announced, UK applicants to Irish universities in 2016 and following years will benefit from a revised model for converting A-Level grades to Leaving Certificate points.

In the context of Brexit, the Irish universities wish to reaffirm their desire to encourage student mobility between the UK and the Republic of Ireland, and particularly with Northern Ireland.
