Important Information about SUSI Grants for Students on the Back to Education Allowance
The SUSI Grant consists of two elements:
(1) The Student Contribution (€3,000 euro), which is paid directly to the College by the Grant awarding body.
(2) The Maintenance element, which is paid to the student.
Students on Back To Education Allowance (BTEA) can apply for the Grant. However, if approved for the Grant, students on BTEA will only receive the Student Contribution element of the Grant, and will not receive the Maintenance element.
Students progressing from Year 2 or 3 to the next year of an ab-initio Level 8 Honours Degree course will continue to receive both elements of the Grant.
Any student who is not approved for the Grant must pay the Student Contribution of €3,000.
