I am going abroad on an Erasmus programme for the academic year 2015/16. Do I have to pay fees to UCC?
Yes you do. You must register online and pay fees accordingly, as if you were attending UCC for the year. This means you must pay the Capitation fee of €165 at least, and if you are liable for the Student Contribution fee of €3,000, or a portion of same, you must pay this fee also. All fees must be paid by 31st January 2016.
I am on Erasmus/Work Placement. How do I collect my Local Authority grant cheque?
If you are on Erasmus or on Work-Placement as part of your course, the Fees Office will lodge your maintenance payments to a Bank Account of your choice.

I am in receipt of a grant paid by a Local Authority. What do I need to do in order to collect my maintenance cheque?
In order to collect your maintenance cheque from the Fees Office, you need to have registered for the current year, and have paid the appropriate fee; €165 for undergraduates, and in the case of postgraduates, the shortfall between the upper limit of the Fees set by Local Authorities (€6,270 in 2014-2015) and the total Tuition Fee. You will also need to present your current student ID card.
Grant cheques must be collected in person by the student, and not by a third party. Cheques may not be posted to students.
