Information on tuition fees can be found on the UL Student Fees webpage

Please note, tuition fees are subject to annual reviewal.

There are two methods for paying your tuition fees

TransferMate (Recommended)

The International Education Division is delighted to be able to offer students from outside the EU the option of paying their tuition fees for full-time programmes online. Fees for on-campus accommodation and medical insurance fees may also be paid online. With no international bank transfer fees and a better exchange rate guaranteed it is the preferred method of payment. Your student visa will be processed much faster.

How does it work?

You make a local bank transfer in your home country. This local payment takes one day. You then email International Student Payment Service (ISPS) a copy of your electronic funds transfer payment. ISPS receive instant notification from the local bank and transfers the money into the University of Limerick bank account.

Pay Now

Proceed to pay for tuition / accommodation / medical insurance through TransferMate.

By Phone

Students can pay over the phone by calling 00353 61 529097. This is a 24-hour automated service.

Please note, you will only be able to pay your acceptance deposit and tuition fees over the phone. You will not be able to pay accommodation costs or purchase medical insurance.

New international students are encouraged to pay tuition fees for year 1 of their programme before they enrol. Tuition fees for subsequent years of study can be paid in instalments.
