FAQ's

I am a Prospective student from Northern Ireland.
How much will my fees be in September 2020?

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 2020?

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 2020 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).
