Student Universal Support Ireland (SUSI)

SUSI is Ireland’s single national awarding authority for all higher and further education grants. It began processing in 2012, replacing the sixty-six local awarding authorities who had previously processed student grant applications, and is currently in its fourth year of applications.

The online application system for new and renewal grant applications for the 2015/16 academic year opened on Thursday 23 April, 2015. Last year SUSI processed more than 103,000 applications with 74,000 students (new and renewal) receiving funding and it expects to receive more than 110,000 applications for the 2015/16 academic year.

SUSI offers funding to eligible students in approved full-time third-level education in Ireland and also, in some cases, funding for students studying outside the State. It offers support to all types of students, from school leavers to mature students returning to education.
