Arrangements for new student grant applications for 2012/2013
Date issued: 01/03/12
A new online only student grant application system is being introduced for the 2012 / 2013 academic year. All new student grant applications will be made online to a single awarding authority, SUSI (Student Universal Support Ireland), a unit of City of Dublin VEC, through www.studentfinance.ie. The details of the 2012/2013 student grant scheme are due to be announced in May and the SUSI online application system will be available from that date.
If you are already in receipt of a grant
Students who are currently in receipt of a student grant and who are progressing to the next year of the same course will continue to be assessed and paid by their existing awarding authorities - i.e. the relevant local authority or Vocational Educational Committee. If you are changing your course or progressing to a new course you will need to apply to the SUSI online system.
You will find answers to the most frequently asked questions (FAQs) on the financial supports available for third-level education on the student finance website.
