Minister Harris said:

“We have taken important steps to address the cost of education for families in Budget 2023.

“This additional student maintenance grant payment will mean more money back in people’s pockets by the end of the year.

“This will benefit almost circa 50,000 students across the country. And effective from January, we will permanently increase maintenance grants by 10-14% ensuring students will receive the help and assistance they need.

“These are practical measures to help students and families with the cost of education and the cost-of-living more generally. This is all about ensuring we can help people through the next weeks and months.

“If you have not paid your fee, it will be knocked off your bill and if you have, your college will be in touch to ensure you get your money back.” is a national database of universities, colleges, institutes and providers of third level, CAO and PLC courses in Ireland. We operate a national search database of courses and colleges.
