Professional Master of Education Grants/Assistance available

27.03.2014 13:29 #1
Hi all,

I am 27 years old . I currently hold a BA in English and History Level 8. I graduated in 2009.
I am currently receiving a social welfare payment.

I am interested in returning to college to study the Professional Master of Education  (formally the hdip).
The course can be studied at UCC, UCD, NUI Galway and Maynooth or online http://hiberniacollege.com/ .


Both courses are two years full time.


Can you please tell me what assistance is available for both courses for someone in my position.


Thanks in advance :)))

We would not provide funding if the course was done online. We only offer funding for full time courses in approved institutes.

There are only fee grants available to postgraduate students. We offer two types of fee grants.

- Post Graduate Fee Contribution (€2000)

To be eligible for this an applicant must:

> Have reckonable income below €31500

- Tuition and Contribution

This covers all fees, subject to a maximum of €6270. This is the special rate of Post graduate grant.

To be eligible for this an applicant must:

> Have reckonable income below €22703
> Have a qualifying Social welfare payment included in the reckonable income.

All qualifying social welfare payments can be found on page 38 of the following document: http://www.susi.ie/foo...ant-Scheme-2013.aspx

I hope this helps and if you have any further queries, please don't hesitate to contact us.

Kind regards,
Shane,
