A student fee has been in place since 2007, and is currently paid to the school as part of its annual fee structure.
Students must pay an additional €100 per year towards their fees, but many schools have been opting to allow their students to cancel the fee early if they choose, for the first year of study, with no penalty if they do not.
Some schools have also introduced free tuition for first year students, but this is not currently available to students who are enrolled in a college or university, and the student fee is the only income required to pay for fees.
In an attempt to ensure that all students are treated equally and without discrimination, this article looks at the legal and financial options available to you if you are a student, and if you decide to cancel your student fee, how it will affect your school and how you can collect the refund.
