may be eligible for the following:

  • The Dr Mary Barry Wall Bursary (for a very limited number of Year 1 PME students ONLY)

How to Apply

There are two application routes for PME students: Route 3 and Route 4.

Route 3 is for PME Students (UCC only). Applications will be considered automatically for the UCC Student Assistance Fund.

Route 4 is for PME Art & Students (UCC & MTU). Please note that applications through Route 4 will not be considered for the UCC Student Assistance Fund automatically. Instead, PME Art & Design Students can apply to the MTU Student Assistance Fund in a separate application (managed by MTU).
