Covid-19 Once-Off Emergency Grant (Rebate)

If you received a Covid rebate, it was applied to your fees account last December.

For many students, the rebate reduced their outstanding fees by €250, and this was deducted from their second instalment.

In the case where you had paid your fees in full in September, your account should be in credit by €250.

This credit can be used when paying your first instalment.

If you are a returning undergraduate student whose tuition is paid by the Higher Education Authority, then the total you pay is €3,130 minus €250 (€2,880).

If you are paying in two instalments, then your first payment will be €1,380, and the subsequent one will be €1,500.


You qualified for the payment if you:

  • were registered as a full-time EU student on 1 November 2020, and were not in creceipt of SUSI funding.
  • were a full-time EU research student, who was registered on 1 April 2020, and was not in receipt of SUSI funding.


If you're receiving a SUSI Grant

All students awarded funding by SUSI for academic year 2020/21 and confirmed as registered have received the Covid-19 Once Off Emergency Grant of €250. SUSI paid the grant directly to students through their registered bank account.
