The BA Hons in Psychology at NCI is a psychology degree that is accredited by the Psychological Society of Ireland (PSI) and an approved course under SUSI’s tuition fees and grant award scheme.
Students applying for funding in the past had to meet the criteria for funding from SUSI to be awarded tuition fees for this programme. The amount of funding awarded will depend on where the student’s household income falls in regards to the thresholds set out by SUSI. (*The grant system is reviewed on an annual basis and students looking to enroll for the academic year 2018/19 are advised to contact SUSI directly to insure funding is available for this programme)
As in currently stands where the basic reckonable income cut-off is €45,790, applicants to the course will receive 100% tuition fees. However, where the basic reckonable income cut-off is €49,840 (as set out in Schedule 4 of the Student Grant Scheme 2015), students will only receive 50% fees i.e. €2’950 and will have to fund the outstanding balance of €2,950 themselves. (*Confirmation on courses that fall under the FFI will be available from January 2018)
With regards to the maintenance grant, applicants may be eligible for 100%, 75%, 50%, 25% or none of the grant depending on where their household income falls within the range of thresholds.
