Course Charges 2024/2025

There is now no cost associated with making an application for a course.

A €50 registration cost (which is non-refundable) will be paid by the applicant at the point of acceptance of an offer of a place on a course.

In addition to the normal PLC registration fee, costs which up until now have been paid directly by a learner themselves for items such as uniforms, equipment or fees to external exam bodies will now be covered by City of Dublin ETB*.

* For our Culinary Arts and Beauty Therapy courses an additional refundable amount of €100 will be required to cover equipment costs for the year. This charge will be refunded to the student upon completion of the course.

All our programmes are funded under the National Development Plan and therefore there are no programme fees. However, students are liable for the payment of a college charge. This covers the costs of student services, all examination and certification fees and charges for membership of professional bodies where applicable. 

Examination and Certification costs vary from programme to programme and are included in your registration fee.

Non EU Nationals are charged fees as set by the Department of Education and Science (click here to view non EU charges) in addition to the programme charges. 

Additional Information



 PLC Maintenance Grant

All PLC Applicants should note that they may be entitled to receive a PLC Maintenance Grant. Eligibility for such grants is means-tested by the ETB in which the Applicant resides and not by the College. The Maintenance Grant does not cover the costs of registration or examination fees. It is a Maintenance grant paid to eligible recipients on a monthly basis directly into their bank account. Information concerning PLC Maintenance Grants should be obtained from the local ETB of the applicant and not the college. VTOS candidates should note that in addition to receipt of Social Welfare Entitlements, there are no charges for books, or examination/ registration fees.

Applicants may also be eligible to receive a small travel and meal allowance. Eligibility to continue to receive social welfare payments whilst participating on a course of study at Coláiste Íde is determined by the Department of Social Community and Family Affairs and not the college.

 Back to Education Allowance Scheme (BTEA) 

Applicants returning to education under the Back to Education Allowance Scheme (BTEA) continue to receive their Social Welfare Entitlements from Department of Social Community and Family Affairs as usual but they must pay for their own books, examination/registration fees similar to the PLC applicant. On confirmation of their BTEA status from Department of Social Community and Family Affairs the students may receive meal and travel allowances.

 Medical Card Holders

If you hold a valid medical card you are eligible to have FETAC fees refunded. In order to have fees refunded you must present a copy of your medical card and a copy of your student ID to the Examinations Secretary, Ms. Jean FitzGerald. Fees will be refunded in due course.
