    In recognition of the cost of living financial challenges facing third level students, the Minister has announced a range of measures to provide additional supports for students in 2022.

    Under the Department’s Free Fees schemes, the State provides funding toward the tuition fee costs of eligible undergraduate Higher Education Institute (HEI) students with students paying the student contribution. The student contribution applies annually to all free fee eligible students and the current rate is €3,000 per annum.

    In accordance with the Budget 2023 announcement, the Government has decided to make a once off contribution of €1,000 towards the student contribution paid by each free fees eligible student in academic year 2022/23 as a Cost of Living measure.

    This will reduce the amount payable by free fees eligible students to their institution from €3,000 to €2,000 in academic year 2022/23. Students eligible for a 50% student contribution support as paid by SUSI will benefit proportionally and will receive a €500 credit (from €1,500 to €1,000) in the value of the student contribution they are due to pay.

     

    For full Terms & Conditions please find the full Government outline here.

     

    What happens next

    • Mary Immaculate College will apply the once off contribution of €1,000, or part thereof, towards student contribution fees on all eligible student accounts.
    • Please ensure that your bank details are updated on your student portal by the 30th November 2022. Please do not send your bank details directly to the student fees team, all bank details must be updated through your student portal only. Where a student has not provided the required details by the required date the HEI may apply a credit to the student's account against any outstanding or future fees due.
    • Should you be deemed eligible for a refund, the student fees team will process refunds in due course.
    • Students that have entered into a valid payment plan will receive a communication from the student fees team with your updated payment plan.

     

    What do you need to do

    • If you do not meet the eligibility criteria for the ‘Once off Government Student Contribution’ scheme, please continue to pay your fees as normal.
    • If you meet the criteria of the ‘Once off Government Student Contribution’ scheme please check your student portal account frequently for updates on the balance remaining payable by you.
    • To ensure a swift turnaround of refunds, please ensure that your bank details are up to date on your student portal by the 30th November 2022. Do not share your bank details by email.

    Grants

    Students apply for a grant through Student Universal Support Ireland (SUSI) and if they meet certain criteria, they may be eligible for full or partial financial support.

Once students have been accepted to/are attending the College, there are bursaries and awards for undergraduates and postgraduates to provide financial and practical assistance and aid them in pursuing further study. Some schemes are specific to, and funded by MIC, while others are funded by the Irish Government and the EU.

    EU / Non-EU Fee Assessment

    EU / Non-EU Fee Assessment

    If you are unsure of your fee status, our Fee Assessment Flowchart provides a graphical guide of how eligibility is assessed for EU & Non-EU fees. Your use of the flowchart is not an application for EU fee assessment and it is not an assessment by the college of your eligibility for EU fees. 

    EU/Non-EU Status Assessments are conducted in MIC by the International Office. Should you require a fee status assessment or require further information please contact the International Office.

      Brexit

      UK students will still be eligible for the EU fee rate. 

      For the free fees initiative, once students meet all other criteria as set out in the Free Fees Initiative, students with UK nationality will continue to be eligible under the nationality criteria of the free fees scheme and UK residency will continue to contribute towards fulfilling the ordinarily resident criteria of the scheme.
