Card Fee 2019-20
  • Card Fee Scheme – 2019-20

    The Card Fee scheme facilitates full-time and part-time research students' progression through the closing stages of their research degree by enabling them, when qualifying conditions are met, to avail of a reduced fee (EUR150) instead of the usual fee associated with their year of study.

    In 2019-20 the Card Fee scheme applies only beyond specific registration periods:

    • > 4 years full-time PhD or > 2 years full-time Masters, or
    • > 5 year part-time PhD or > 3 years part-time Masters

    The scheme is administered by the Graduate Studies Office in cooperation with Registry and the Fees Office.

    Applicants must be in good standing in respect of fees. Supervisors are required to submit the Card Fee Declaration (with student signature/s as appropriate) and then qualification is confirmed upon submission of a soft bound thesis by 3rd January 2020.

    NB The "Thesis Submission and Oral Examination" doctoral guide produced by the Graduate Studies Office to assist students approaching the closing stages of their research can be found at the following link:
