What are my fees?


Full -Time Students

1. STUDENT CONTRIBUTION for full-time students

For 2020/21 a charge of €3,000 is payable by each student to cover essential student services.


European Union nationals attending full time undergraduate courses are normally only required to pay the student contribution as described above.

However the following EU nationals will be liable for the total annual fees as per Table 1 below

  • EU nationals who have not been resident in an EU member state for 3 of the past 5 years,
  • EU nationals who are following a second or subsequent third-level course, depending on the type and duration of the previous course attended.

Fees are set annually by the Department of Education & Skills.


Table 1

EU Fees - 2020/2021

Total Fees (incl Student Contribution)

Undergraduate Higher Certificate (Level 6)


Undergraduate Ordinary Degree (Level 7)


Undergraduate Engineering Honours Degree (Level 8)
Undergraduate Other Honours Degree (Level 8)



Students who are progressing carrying modules from a previous year are required to pay fees in respect of the modules they are carrying in addition to the student contribution fee and EU fee where applicable.  The fees are charged at €50 per credit (for example a student carrying a 5 credit module will pay an additional €250).

This additional fee to progress carrying is not covered by a grant and must be paid by the student.



Students who are repeating and attending a full/part year of study will be liable for fees which are not covered by a grant.  The fee will be calculated on a per credit amount of the total full years fees as in Table 1 above.


5. NON-EUROPEAN UNION (Non-EU) Fees - 2020/2021

Non-European Union nationals attending full-time undergraduate courses at TU Dublin Blanchardstown Campus are normally required to pay the below fees.

Non EU Fees - 2020/2021


Undergraduate Higher Certificate (Level 6)


Undergraduate Ordinary Degree (Level 7)


Undergraduate Honours Degree (Level 8)
Undergraduate Honours Degree (Level 8) Engineering
Postgraduate (Level 9)                                            €14,500


Any non-EU national who has been legally resident in an EU member state for at least three of the last five years may qualify to pay fees at the EU rate (with the exemption of those on a student visa).

It is a requirement that documentary evidence of residency and the duration of residence in the EU member state is provided to qualify for the EU rate of tuition fees.

Refugees with official refugee status (at the time of first registration) are not normally required to pay fees other than the contribution charge. A student in the process of seeking asylum is considered as non-EU National and is therefore normally required to pay the non-EU rate of fees.
