SUSI (Student Universal Support Ireland)

Student Universal Support Ireland or SUSI as it is better known is Ireland’s single national awarding authority for all higher and further education grants.

You should apply for your SUSI grant as early as possible to allow for your application to be processed as quickly as possible. To do this, you will need to create a SUSI online account. Please ensure you remember the details used when creating your online account as you will need to access it after making your original application. You should make sure that the information you are supplying to SUSI is correct to avoid unnecessary delays with your application.

SUSI offers funding to eligible students in approved full-time third-level education in Ireland and also, in some cases, funding for students studying outside the State. Support is available to all types of students, from school leavers to mature students returning to education.

SUSI process applications under the criteria set out in the Student Support Act 2011, the Student Support Regulations and the Student Grant Scheme – the legislation can be found in here.

If you have received a SUSI grant previously, you still need to reapply on an annual basis once you are progressing through your course.

You can apply and track your application online on www.susi.ie.

If you are making an application to SUSI, we would recommend you read the relevant documentation available on the www.susi.ie  and on www.studentfinance.ie.

If you require assistance regarding your SUSI application, please contact Aly, your Education & Lifelong Learning Officer by emailing sueducation@itcarlow.ie.
