Information on Undergraduate Fees

Undergraduate programme fees consist of the following elements: 

1. Student Contribution Fee

The Student Contribution Charge for the academic year 2019/2020 is €3,000.  This is an annual charge, set by the Government for all full-time third level students.

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

2. EU Tuition Fees

The EU Tuition fees for the academic year 2019/2020 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 that their tuition fee liability can be determined.  These forms can be requested from admissions@lit.ie.

3. Materials / Health & Safety Fee

Students on undergraduate Art & Design programmes will have to pay a Materials fee of €100.00 for the academic year 2019/2020.

Students on undergraduate Science programmes will have to pay a Health and Safety fee of €45.00 for the academic year 2019/2020.

Please note that these additional fees are not covered by SUSI and must be paid by the student before they start their programme.
