Finance at University

Finance at University can be an expensive time in life as you will not be working full-time and will have to rely on other means to survive. Many students will receive some or all of their income through their parents/guardians however, in cases where there is a shortfall in your income; there are a variety of ways of bridging that gap. A part-time job is the first option for most students however; some students may also be eligible for a SUSI grant or financial assistance. Student Support & Development administers financial assistance for students who find themselves suddenly unable to cope financially. To find detailed information on possible ways to bridge the financial gap such as SUSI Grant together with other grants and scholarships, Student Assistance Fund, 1916 Bursary, Financial Survival at University, Fee waivers on medical grounds and reduced fees for First Year transfer students please see the following link:
