Am I elegible?

20.03.2014 10:47 #1
I was in first year in GMIT in 2011 doing level 7 course, i failed first year and took the following year out. In september 2013 I was accepted into the first year of a level 8 in NUIG, but I did not start the course as I could not afford it.  SUSI rejected my grant application because going back into first year was "not seen as progress" I have since completed a FETAC level 6 which allows me direct entry into 2nd year of a level 7 in Cork IT, Waterford IT and Dundalk IT. As I am going directly into second year and this is "progress" will I be entitled to the grant on that basis?
I will meet all other criteria for the grant. This "progress" issue is my only quiry?

As you have not done second year of an undergraduate course before, this would be considered academic progression. You would therefore be eligible once you met the other eligibility criteria.

If you have any further queries, please don't hesitate to contact us.

Kind regards,
