SUSI is the main type of grant payment in the Republic of Ireland. Grants are only awarded to those applying to full time courses in registered public colleges. Students in private colleges are not eligible for grant applications. Therefore most MTU students are eligible to apply for the grant. Although postgraduate students are not eligible for a maintenance allowance they may be eligible for a grant for tuition fees. Grants are only awarded to those who have legally lived in Ireland for 3 of the last 5 years.

If you applied for your Student Grant using the SUSI system last year you should receive an email or letter at the start of June asking you to renew your grant to see if you are still eligible for it.
