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.

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.
