Costs and Funding of Study in Ireland

Students from the EU pay the same fees as locals (EU fees, 3,000EUR and up per year). Others pay full fees (7,000EUR and up). Education Ireland has more details about costs.

Students coming from non EU countries have to pay for disability specific services where the costs are significant. This money should be provided by the student through their home University.

If you study as part of an exchange program organized by a university in your home country then you are likely to pay the same fees that you would have paid at home.
