Please check your offer letter carefully to determine if there are any academic or English language conditions attached.

As soon as you have completed the examinations and received the results stated on your offer letter, please submit the results to International Education Division (IED) for verification.

Please note, unconditional offer letters are not issued.

Students must provide original documents to the IED office on arrival for verification.  

Conditional offer letters will suffice if you are applying for a visa.



New students are required 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.

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. Proceed to pay for tuition / accommodation / medical insurance online

TransferMate can be contacted directly at
