What are the Fees for each Course?
While the Government funds a smaller number of part-time courses under schemes such as Springboard the current general model of funding part-time higher education in Ireland is for students to self-fund their courses - i.e. the Student Grant or BTEA / Back to Education Allowance schemes do not currently fund part-time courses.

Instalment Plan Facility
If students have difficulty in paying the full fees on application, they may wish to avail of the instalment facility (available to undergraduate students only). When students register, they must agree and accept the terms and conditions. If students fail to meet these terms and conditions WIT reserves the right to withhold certain student facilities and privileges. Under the instalment plan: 50% of the annual fee is due on application - i.e. 50% has to be paid before an application will be processed the remaining 50% is due the following January ( at the start of Semester 2).
Bursary for Applicants in Receipt of Social Welfare Payments
We encourage those in receipt of Social Welfare benefits to apply as part time students to WIT. Applicants in receipt of these payments may apply for a bursary rate (circa 25% discount) for many part-time undergraduate courses. If your partner is claiming payments on your behalf you may also be eligible to claim the bursary. Proof of joint benefit payment is required.
Please provide evidence of your eligibility along with your application for the course. This can take the form of an electronic copy of your most recent payment receipt or a letter from the DSP (if you don’t have an electronic copy then take a picture of the document with your phone). This scheme will be subject to review at the end of each academic year and does not apply to any of our part-time postgraduate programmes.
Fees Paid by Employer / Sponsor
Where your fees are being paid by your employer or a sponsor apply by: clicking the ‘Apply’ button on the course webpage for the course you are interested in – please see links to the course pages at: www.wit.ie/parttime
Complete the online application form including full details for your employer / sponsor [name, contact details etc. as set out in the online form].
Your employer/sponsor will be invoiced by WIT and your application will be finalised when payment has been received. In this instance the payment will go against the sponsor organisation & the receipt will be sent to them. Students should be aware that 1) their name and/or student ID may be on the receipt issued to the sponsor; 2) the student is not entitled to receive a copy of the sponsors receipt and 3) if the sponsor organisation defaults on payment the student remains liable for the fees.
Please supply a valid email address - all correspondence regarding your application, start date of your course etc. will be made by email. It is your responsibility to check your nominated email inbox regularly.
People pursuing level 6-8 courses may be eligible for Tax Relief on their fees if paying from their own income. Registered employers may also be eligible to claim relief on course fees paid for employees. Please see more information on the revenue Tax Relief for Tuition Fees in Respect to Third Level education / Form IT31 webpages or contact your local Revenue Office.
Deregistration and Refund of Part-time Fees
Part-time courses go ahead subject to sufficient enrolments and viability. If a course isundersubscribed, we will let students know at the earliest opportunity, and make every effort to offer students an alternative course or we will refund students the full tuition fee via bank transfer or directly back to your credit card. Where a student finds themselves in a position where they no longer wish to or are not in a position to continue on their course they need to de-register from the Institute. Deregistering means that a student officially notifies the Institute that s/he is leaving their programme. Students remain liable for fees up to the date they officially withdraw from the Institute. In order to de-register from the Institute there is a deregistration form which a student must complete which is available from the Part-time Student Helpdesk - contact [email protected]
