Step 1: Check TUS Email

Your Student email can be accessed from anywhere by going to Student Email Account 

Please note that your Student Email is the primary form of communication used between the University and student. All relevant information with regard to classes, events, fees, exams etc will be issued to your student email account.  It is the responsibility of each student to check your email regularly and to make yourself aware of communication issuing to you. 

Failure to read email is not sufficient defence for missed deadlines etc.

Student Fee, Payment Plan & Payment Information (Step 2)

All programme fees are stated in the relevant programme details in the prospectus. Except where stated programme fees cover the cost of tuition only and refer to the programme or academic year as appropriate. 

Some programmes require students to pay additional registration/examination fees separately (and in some cases directly) to the accrediting professional body. This is noted in the programme’s details in this prospectus. It is the responsibility of each student to ensure that such fees are paid on time. The Department of Lifelong Learning cannot be held responsible in instances where this does not occur. 

Further details are available on the following link: Department of Lifelong Learning website


Payment Plan Option 

We require all students to pay their programme fee in full on registration, however in some cases we recognise that this may not be possible. To accommodate this, we have introduced a structured payment plan option that is only available on programmes where the programme fee exceeds €1000. The structured payment plan is as follows: 

Programme fee of €2350: 

Payment One - Deposit of €550 on or before September 12th 2022 

Payment Two - November 7th 2022, €600 (or balance outstanding) 

Payment Three - January 23rd 2023, €600 (or balance outstanding) 

Payment Four - March 6th 2023, €600 (or balance outstanding) 

Programme fee of €3525:
