Scholarships / Funding

Wondering how to fund your studies at NCAD? Funding programmes are available to support your studies at undergraduate and postgraduate levels.

Undergraduate

All new  Higher Education Student Grants are administered through a single agency called SUSI (Student Universal Support Ireland).  Applications are made online and students who wish to apply for a student grant are advised to start the process as early as possible.  You can start the application process before you receive your CAO place offer and have confirmed your acceptance.

Postgraduate and Research

These scholarships will recognise excellence, outstanding achievement and potential in Art, Design and Visual Culture. The scholarships, worth full tuition fees (exception MFA Fine Art, see details below), are awarded on academic merit and all applicants are eligible, including EU and non EU students.

NCAD Fees

Important information about the UK EU referendum result and NCAD tuition fees

Existing enrolled UK/ NI  students will retain an EU fee status and/or an entitlement to ‘Free Fees’ funding, if they were assessed with this status on the basis of existing regulations, for the duration of their current degree programme. 

UK/NI students who enrol in the 2019/20 academic year, and who have an EU fee status for that year, will retain this status for the duration of their programme.

Please note that the arrangements for an intake of UK /NI students in subsequent years will be kept under review in the context of the Brexit negotiations.
