The national student grant system, SUSI, is open for online applications for the coming year. While student’s plans may be up in the air, it is important to get your application in as soon as possible.Students do not need to have their Leaving Cert results, or to have accepted a course in order to apply. They can simply supply the details of the course they hope to study and update their course choice online at a later date.

It is expected that there will be a high number of applications over the coming months. Before making an application, students are encouraged to use SUSI’s online eligibility reckoner to give them an indication of their eligibility for student grant funding.
