Fees

EU Fees - Full-time Undergraduate

Do I have to pay fees? 

All students are required to pay the Student Contribution Charge of €3,000 for 2022/2023, unless awarded a grant by Student Universal Support Ireland (SUSI). If you have received a letter confirming your grant eligibility from SUSI, you may be exempt from paying the student contribution charge of €3,000. In some cases, SUSI may only award a percentage of the contribution charge making you liable to pay the balance.
If you are liable to pay tuition fees (not eligible for free fees), SUSI may or may not pay these fees on your behalf, so it is very important you check this with SUSI.
 

If I don’t qualify for a maintenance grant, what fees will I have to pay? 

If you do not qualify for a maintenance grant, you will be liable to pay the Student Contribution Charge. For 2022/2023 academic year this is €3,000. If you are eligible under the ‘free fees scheme’ for Level 6, 7 and 8 programmes, the tuition element of your fees will most likely be paid on your behalf.

Can I pay my fees in instalments?

Fees can be paid in 2 instalments – 50% must be paid during online registration and the remaining 50% by 31st January 2023. Note you will not have access to University facilities until 50% of the total fee has been paid.

What are the consequences of not paying the fees due by the specified dates above? 

Failure to adhere to these arrangements will result in your university facilities being withdrawn including Access ID, University PCs, Blackboard, Library facilities, examination results and possible restricted access to student services including gym membership and parking.

I am repeating and attending classes for some or all modules. What fees will I have to pay? 

If you are repeating and attending a full year of a programme, you are liable to pay full tuition fees and Student Contribution Charge for that programme. If you are repeating only some of a programme you will be liable to pay part of the Tuition Fees and Student Contribution Charge.

If I decide to leave my course what should I do? 

If you decide to leave your course you must complete a Withdrawal from Academic Year form and submit it to the Admissions Office along with your student ID card. This form is also available from the Admissions Office. 

Please be aware that if you withdraw after the 31st of October, there will be fee implications. You will have a fee liability to SETU for the time you attended your course and should you return to 3rd level education in the future you may be liable for fees for the equivalent period of study. Future SUSI grant applications may also be affected.

Postgraduate Taught Fees

Information on fees for taught postgraduate courses for 2022/2023 will be available on the website in early August 2022.

Online Payments

SETU is committed to providing flexible and efficient services to all students. In recognition of the current economic climate SETU has introduced options to assist those students who are experiencing financial difficulties in paying their fees. You now have the following options when paying your fees:

Undergraduate Students

  1. You must pay at least 50% of the total fee online at the beginning of the year (In most cases, this will be €1,500 as €3,000 is the approximate total fee) and the remaining 50% by 31st January 2023 (Again, this remaining fee is usually €1,500 in most cases). Note you will not have access to University facilities until the first instalment has been paid.
  2. You can pay 100% of the total annual fee (usually €3,000 approximately) online at the beginning of the year.

Student fees must be paid online using either credit, debit or laser cards.  Access our Payment link here

  • Note:  there may be a limit or restriction on the amount you can pay per transaction (this is not a daily limit) and therefore you may be required to complete two or more transactions to pay fees in full.
  • Students who do NOT pay the fee amount due by the deadline dates in option 1 above will face possible sanctions (see details above).
  • To make a payment you need your Student e-mail address and your password. You must also have pop-ups enabled on your device.
