Fees do not have to be paid up-front. A tuition fees loan can be taken out and you can defer payment until you have graduated and are in employment. Northern Ireland students can apply for maintenance loans and University bursaries to help with living costs. Means-tested maintenance grants are also available.

Funding arrangements for students from England, Scotland and Wales vary. As a Republic of Ireland student, you can transfer your maintenance awards to Northern Ireland.
