International Students

Four methods of payment for tuition fees:

(1)   Pay your fees online here.

(2)   Payment via recognised agent TransferMate:  Non-European Union (EU) students are strongly advised to pay their tuition fee through TransferMate.   The TransferMate receipt is accepted as proof of payment of tuition fees by the Irish National Immigration Service (INIS) for study visa applications and at the point of entry to Ireland.   With TransferMate there is no international bank transfer fee and the entire transaction takes just 48 hours from start to finish. TransferMate is also recommended by the Irish Naturalisation and Immigration Service for the purposes of study visa applications.

(3)     International Wire Transfer:  Alternatively, you may also pay by international wire transfer, using the following  bank account details.

If paying by international wire transfer please ensure you quote your eight digit student ID number (i.e. CAO/Postgraduate Application number). Please ensure your ID number is the first item quoted on the transaction.
