University of Limerick postgraduate funding checklist

One of the big considerations of any postgraduate study is the cost, so we’ve put together this short list of your options for postgraduate funding to help you along the way.

Note: the scholarship information is updated throughout the year, so please check in with the UL site for updates.


Students enrolling in postgraduate courses may be eligible for financial assistance through the government’s student grant scheme.

Grants cover some/all of the cost of tuition fees and the course must be in Ireland or Northern Ireland.

SUSI awards grants on two levels:

  • A flat rate fee contribution of €2,000 if you pass a fee contribution means test (essentially based on your earnings and living situation).
  • Cover for all tuition fees and essential field trips (up to €6,270) if you meet the qualifying conditions of the special rate of grant for disadvantaged students.

To qualify, students must meet the requirements for:

  • Nationality.
  • Immigration status.
  • Residency.
