  2. Students who defer a semester on medical grounds will be required to pay half of the Registration Fee.
  3. Students repeating a semester on medical grounds will be asked to pay €55 per credit plus the relevant Student Levy. If they wish to appeal these repeat fees, they should fill out the Medical Waiver Form.

*Students intending to return to a new programme of study will be charged the full published fee.
**Students who defer an academic year prior to the cut-off date at the end of October will not be charged a further Registration Fee upon returning to the University the following year. Any difference in the Registration Fee will, however, be charged back to the student.

Upon returning to the college, students will be asked to provide a letter from their consultant/GP stating that they are fit to return to study. Students may appeal the payment of the above-mentioned fees by filling out and submitting the form below. Each case will be examined individually.
