Apprentice Fee Information – Midwest

The Annual Student Contribution is levied on students attending Higher Education Institutions including Technological Universities. As part of changes included in Budget 2014, apprentices will now pay the same contribution fee as full-time students, but their contribution will be based on the time they spend in the Institutes.

This is typically one third of the Annual Student Contribution paid by students attending for the full academic year, but it can be greater for certain trades where longer periods are spent on campus.  The amount due for full-time students for the academic year 2023/2024 is €3,000.

The fees due by apprentices to the Technological University for the duration of their attendance are set out in the schedules below. The Student Contribution is payable on the date of registration for the training phase.

If you are being Sponsored by your employer, TUS can issue an Invoice to them on completion of a Sponsorship Agreement Form, here.
