Registration FAQs

Got a question here are the answers to questions we get asked the most. Have a look at our FAQ section below


I Have Applied to Study in TU Dublin

Often our initial offer of a place on a TU Dublin programme is a "conditional" offer, what this means is the offer is provisional pending the applicant supplying further documentation to support their application eg transcripts of results or confirmation in writing of relevant work experience.  At this stage, the offer is "conditional" until all required documents are submitted by the applicant to TU Dublin's office dealing with the application.  Your application is not finalised at this stage therefore you will not yet receive information on how to register on your chosen programme.

An "unconditional" offer" is where you have been offered a place on a TU Dublin programme and all required documentation to support your application has been submitted by you.  If you meet all the necessary requirements and a place is available TU Dublin will offer you an "unconditional" offer of a place on your chosen programme.

Registering & Paying Fees

If you are a returning student and were on an Erasmus exchange last year, your examination results will not be considered until the supplemental exam boards, which happens in the second and third week of September.

Invitations to Register will be sent out to successful students to their TU Dublin Student Email Account following the exam board meetings. Students should attend classes (temporarily unregistered) until they receive an Invitation to Register email to their TU Dublin student email account.

As soon as you receive your Invitation to Register for the relevant academic year, you can register online.

The following categories of students must attend in person at TU Dublin Aungier St to register in person ie they cannot register online

  • Students paying international fees
  • Visiting/exchange students 
  • Apprentice students (present at TU Dublin's Student Service Centres at times agreed for each programme)

Students in these categories will be contacted by the Registions Service advising a time and date to attend for registration. 

All students must register for their programme before their classes commence.  By registering on your programme you will be given access to services you need such as webcourses, avail of an student card, avail of a library account, access to buildings etc. 

Classes for fulltime students will commence on Monday 17th September 2018 unless you are advised otherwise by the School running the programme.  Classes for part-time students commence week beginning 17th September 2018 unless you are advised otherwise by the School running the programme.  Click here for details of TU Dublins academic calendar 2018-19. 

All TU Dublin students are required to register for their programme before they attend any classes.  If you register later than the commencement of classes you will not have access to the services you need such as webcourses, library account and you may be charged a late fee of 200 euro. The financial penalty will be applied to your student account on 31st October.

Fees can be paid using a debit or credit card when registering for your programme online.  Alternatively students can pay fees by bank transfer to TU Dublin bank account.  Also you can ring any of the following numbers and we can take payments over the phone where monies are on a debit or credit card:

01 402 7500 / 01 402 7000 / 01 402 3883

Yes, students must pay a minimum of 50% of the overall fee owing before classes commence.  The remaining 50% can be paid in numerous transactions online throughout the year from mid August 2018 to 31st January 2019.  It is important to ensure the full amount is paid by 31st January so you have access to your Semester 1 exam results and to avoid additional financial penalties for a default in payment.

Students have the option to pay:

100% of fees due

50% of fees due

Any other amount (students will not be allowed register until a minimum of 50% of the total fee due is paid)

You will not have access to TU Dublin services and you are not entitled to attend classes.  Any applicants who has not registered by 1st December 2018 we assume are not taking their place and they will be removed from TU Dublins Student Record system.  There are significant final implications if an applicant is attending unregistered and requests to be re-instated on TU Dublins Student Record system after they have been removed. 

For further information regarding TU Dublin's policy in relation to payment and registration deadlines, please refer to our Registration and Fees policy.

Undergraduate fulltime students who have applied for a SUSI grant can register online without having to pay any fees.  You need the following information to hand when registering online for your programme:

Grant Application Number:  W123456789013 (sample)

Date you applied for Grant:  7th July 2018

Name of Awarding Body/VEC - choose from drop down menu eg SUSI (Student Universal Support Ireland)

Postgraduate fulltime students who have applied for a grant are requested to pay a minimum of 50% of the overall fee owing to register.  The reasonwe ask for this is the majority of postgraduate students do not receive funding for the full amount of the postgraduate fee therefore TU Dublin require postgraduate students to pay the minimum amount to get registered pending the outcome of their grant application.  If subsequently the grant authority pays 100% of the fees for a postgraduate student TU Dublin will refund the amount paid back to the student.

Student Orientation & Class Timetables

Students are invited and encouraged to attend an informal orientation with TU Dublin. Students meet their class mates, programme tutor and Head of School and receive their timetable. Students have the opportunity to ask questions. A library tour is usually included.  Useful information to help you settle into college are given at orientation so it is advisable to attend.

The Registration Service website will have details from early August and mid December regarding orientations.  Details for orientation and student card collection for our fulltime undergraduate new students is available here    If the information is not posted online and you have not received any information by post, email or text, please contact the School Administrator of the School you are going to be attending.
