Paying fees?

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.
