Fees vary from year to year. They also vary from programme to programme. Fees information is available from the Fees Office website.
Fees are typically paid at registration - however all first year postgraduate students will have paid a €200 deposit via PAC towards their annual fee before coming to register. This is deducted from the overall fee amount.
First year students
When accepted onto a course by the University ALL new incoming students will receive a Bank Giro payment form through the post. This Bank Giro will enable students to pay their fees through any Bank if they so wish OR students also have the option to call into the Fees & Grants Office with the relevant payment (quoting their current and correct student number).
Second year & recurring students
Online registration is in operation for all 2nd year and recurring students. Fees can be paid in two installments at http://fees.nuim.ie/bankinfo.shtml
Students also have the option to request a Bank Giro payment form while registering on-line or you can call into the Fees & Grants office with payment.
If you are in receipt of funding that pays for your fees, you must take written confirmation of that funding along to registration with you and also ensure that you have completed the Internal Fees Transfer Form for funded postgraduate students.
For students in receipt of project/sponsored scholarships the Internal Fees Transfer Form, must be completed by the Institute/ Department /Academic Budget Holder where applicable. It is essential that the student either presents this at registration or the record copy is sent to Fees in advance by the PI/Budget holder. It is important that the Department/ Academic Budget Holder specifies the duration to which the fees charge applies.
If you are funded for fees, you need to determine whether or not the funding will cover you for the full fee for which you are liable. For example, IRCSET students who have been granted an extension need to be aware that the expenses allowance in the extension is granted pro rata. This means you only get expenses relative to the number of months in your extension. If you get a 6 month extenstion, your funding won't cover the full year's fee for which you are liable.
If you are in receipt of a John and Pat Hume Scholarship, a Doctoral Teaching Scholarship or an Irish Research Council Scholarship the Graduate Studies Office will take care of the fees paperwork for you. The office will compile a list of awardees from these three scholarship bodies and present this to the Fees Office for payment. If you have any queries regarding this, please contact Melissa Barbier at 01 708 6785.
