No Fee Hike for Continuing International Students at Trinity

Published 06 August 2018

Trinity College Dublin has given relief to 700 continuing non-EU international students at TCD with the news that fees are to remain the same for their remaining years of study.

There was widespread protests at the news of a 5% increase in tuition fees for international students at Trinity, with Trinity Students Union president Shane De Ris saying of the change that such a decision “shows the power and importance of the student voice and representation within college”.

The 5% hike in the fee would have affected the continuing science students of the University who would benefit from the proposed Engineering, Energy and Environment (E3) Institute. However, the students protested that such a hike would be a breach of the Fee Certainty agreement.
