FAQ's About Student Fees

I am a Prospective student from Northern Ireland.
How much will my fees be in September 2022?

Undergraduate students who have been resident in Northern Ireland* and have UK /EU/EEA/Swiss citizenship will have the tuition element of their fee paid for the duration of the course at St. Angela’s College (all other conditions [i.e. excluding nationality and residency] of the Free Fees Initiative being met). These students will need to pay the student contribution (currently €3,000 p.a.) and student levy (€75 p.a.) only.

*Students who have been ordinarily resident in Northern Ireland for at least three of the five years preceding their entry to their third-level course and who meet the criteria of the scheme. Eligibility is determined at date of entry to the course.

I am a prospective student from Great Britain.
How much will my fees be in September 2022?

Based on current best advice, by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (which may change subject to whatever Brexit agreement is reached), all UK citizens resident in Great Britain (England, Scotland and Wales) registering in 2022 at an Irish Higher Education Institution will be eligible for the EU level of fees (If they meet the equivalent nationality/residency criteria required of an EU/EEA/Swiss National).

What is the Tuition Fee, and do I have to pay it?

All full-time Undergraduate courses contain three elements:

(1) tuition; (2) student contribution charge; and (3) student levy. The full criteria are listed in table above (Undergraduate Students).

The tuition fee is the payment made for a course of instruction at St. Angela’s College. This is payable if you are not eligible for free tuition fees.

You are eligible for free tuition if:

  • You (the student) are attending a full-time undergraduate course and you have never been to third level before September 2022 either in Ireland or the EU
  • You must also be an Irish / EU national who has lived here for 3 of the last 5 years
    or
    You have official Irish Refugee status and have lived in the EU for 3 of the last 5 years

What is the Student Contribution Charge, and do I have to pay it?

All full-time Undergraduate courses contain three elements:

(1) tuition; (2) student contribution charge; and (3) student levy. The full criteria are listed in table above (Undergraduate Students).

The student contribution charge is €3,000 in 2022/23. It covers costs associated with student services, examinations, admissions, registration, fees administration and student records. 

It is payable by all students. However, if you are eligible for a means tested SUSI grant this may cover 100% of this Student Contribution Charge. If you are 100% eligible SUSI will pay the Student Contribution Charge of €3,000 on your behalf. If you are partially eligible (i.e. 33%, 50%, 66% etc) you will be liable for the remaining balance prior to 31/10/22 and 31/01/23.  

If you are not eligible for a grant you are liable for this payment in 2022/23.

What is the Student Levy, and do I have to pay it?

All full-time Undergraduate courses contain three elements:

(1) tuition; (2) student contribution charge; and (3) student levy. The full criteria are listed in table above (Undergraduate Students).
The student levy (€75 in 2022/23, subject to change due to impending incorporation with IT Sligo)  is payable by all students and is not covered by SUSI or any other funding body. It must be paid in full on or before 31/10/22. If you are applying for the Financial Aid Fund it must be paid in full prior to application. 

It is strongly recommended that you pay this levy on registration in late August / early September 2022.

Is there a reduction in fees if a lot of activity is moving online?

St. Angela’s College is committed to providing a world-class educational experience in the upcoming academic year.

The College is focused on delivering a high quality educational and social experience for our communities on campus or online as required, and we do not intend to reduce fees in the forthcoming academic year. We will continue to provide information in as timely a manner as possible to inform your decision-making. We ask for patience as we all continue to navigate through these unprecedented times together. 

I have lost my job and it will be impossible for me to pay my student loan - what options do I have now?
I’m really worried about it. 

It’s important to remember that a lot of people are in the same situation and you are not alone. You need to contact your bank directly and advise them of your situation. Bank of Ireland can be contacted directly on 1850 222 200 and AIB bank can be contacted at 1890 724 724. Banks are very anxious to support their clients through this very challenging period.

I am worried about being able to pay for the expenses of my course. 
Is there any financial help available in the College?

Yes, students may apply to the Student Assistance Fund for help with paying for expenses of their course. See further information HERE

I know my parents won't have much money if I get to study at St. Angela’s College. Can I get a bank loan?

We appreciate that funding college can be very challenging for many students and their families. Please be aware that various banks have different student loan criteria. It's well worth checking with them all. Credit Unions can also be very supportive. If you have a savings account with your own bank and therefore have a track record with them it is very positive and may help you. You should consider applying for SUSI grant funding as well.

Both my parents have been laid off due to COVID-19 pandemic. Is there any financial assistance available for students hoping to get a place in September?

Your parents may be interested in finding out about the COVID-19 Pandemic Unemployment Payment.

In relation to your query about financial supports for incoming students you may be eligible for the SUSI grant. Please continue to monitor the SUSI website for ongoing updates.

We also have a Student Assistance Fund available to all St. Angela’s College students.
