    | Gerard McQuillan |



    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 must 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 students household income falls in regards to the thresholds set out by SUSI.

    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. €2,750 and will have to fund the outstanding balance of €2,750 themselves.

    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.

    Further details regarding funding for tuition fees can be found on the SUSI website and those who are still not sure as to whether they are eligible for tuition fees should contact SUSI directly.
