Studying in Ireland or the UK

Will fee rates change for United Kingdom students studying in Ireland or Irish students studying in the United Kingdom?

Should you pursue your study in the United Kingdom, your fees will be set at the EU level for the 2019/ 2020 academic year, and will continue on that basis for the duration of the programme for which you have registered.

Will student financial supports such as the SUSI grant still be available for United Kingdom students studying in Irish higher education institutions and Irish students studying in the United Kingdom?

Yes. Students will continue to be able to access the SUSI grant on the same basis. The Government indicates that it is taking steps to amend the Student Support Act 2011 to preserve this status quo.

Will Erasmus+ be affected by Brexit?

The European Union’s Erasmus+ 2014-2020 Programme provides funding for a range of international education and training projects, including student and staff mobility and exchanges, job shadowing, teaching assignments, and strategic partnerships between organisations.

The Programme will continue to operate fully for Ireland and the EU Member States. The future participation of the United Kingdom in the Erasmus+ Programme is being considered in the context of the overall negotiations between the European Union and the United Kingdom.

In the event of a “no deal Brexit”, the European Union has prepared legislation which will come into effect automatically to ensure that students who are currently ‘on Erasmus’ in United Kingdom institutions will be permitted to complete their placement without interruption. This position also applies to United Kingdom students studying in EU Member States.
