Information on Undergraduate Fees

Undergraduate programme fees consist of the following elements:

  1. A Student Contribution fee;
  2. A Tuition fee and;
  3. A Materials/Health & Safety fee, where applicable.

Student Contribution Charge

The Student Contribution Charge for the academic year 2018/19 is €3,000.  This is an annual charge, which is set by the Government for all full-time third level students.

Students can apply to Student Universal Support Ireland (SUSI) for a grant which, if approved, may cover 100% of the Student Contribution Charge. For information on Grants go to www.susi.ie.

EU Tuition Fees
The EU Tuition fees for the academic year 2018/2019 will be as follows:

Programme                                                               Annual EU Tuition Fee Rate
Higher Certificate (Level 6)                                                            €250
Ordinary Degree (Level 7)                                                             €250
Honours Degree (Level 8)                                                             €819
Honours Degree - Engineering (Level 8)                                       €1,450

Most full-time undergraduate students will be covered by the *Higher Education Authority Free Fees Initiative scheme for their tuition fee, and therefore will only have to pay the aforementioned Student Contribution Fee.

However, students undertaking a second undergraduate programme, non-EU students, students studying by ACCS mode and students taking a year of a programme for a second time (i.e. repeating a year/level) may be liable for tuition fees.

Students who have previously attended another third level programme must complete a previous third-level form and submit it to the admissions office so they can determine the tuition fee liability.  These forms can be requested from admissions@lit.ie.

To see if you qualify for the free tuition fees, please see our HEA Free Tuition Fees Initiative webpage. http://www.lit.ie/GrantsandFees/FreeFees.aspx
