FAQs for International and Visiting US students

In compliance with University policy and immigration control, international students must pay their fees before they are permitted to complete formal registration for their NUI Galway course. US visiting students who have arranged to pay their NUI Galway fees via their home College must furnish such payment details to the NUI Galway fees office in advance of registration. International and Visiting US Students who have successfully applied for a course/programme at NUI Galway will have been allocated a ’pre registration’ 8 digit student ID which should be quoted on all fee transactions and correspondence.

How do I register?

Please see our Registration website for full details.  Registration opens on 22nd August 2013.

 

How do I pay my fees?

1.     Payment via recognised agent ’EduStep’ (PaytoStudy)

Non-European Union (EU) students are strongly advised to pay their tuition fee through the PaytoStudy website.

The PaytoStudy receipt is accepted as proof of payment of tuition fees by the Irish National Immigration Service (INIS) for study visa applications and at the point of entry to Ireland.

With PaytoStudy there is no international bank transfer fee and the entire transaction takes just 48 hours from start to finish. PaytoStudy is also recommended by the Irish Naturalisation and Immigration Service for the purposes of study visa applications.

2.     International Wire Transfer 

Alternatively, you may also pay by international wire transfer, using the following  bank account details:

Bank of Ireland
43 Eyre Square   
Galway                                
Ireland 

Account Name:  National University of Ireland, Galway
Account Number: 28454143
IBAN: IE43 BOFI 9038 1628 4541 43
Sort Code: 90-38-16  
Swift Code: BofIIE2D

The processing time and the fee for sending international wire transfers may vary from bank to bank. Please allow for up to 10 working days for processing. Please ensure you quote your name and Student ID number when paying by international bank transfer.


3.    Bank Giro
Students resident in Ireland can request a personalised Bank Giro from the Fees office by emailing fees@nuigalway.ie. You can then take the giro to the nearest bank and pay ’over the counter’. Your details on the personalised Bank Giro will facilitate the credit of your payment to your fee account when returned by the bank to the University.  

Please note that on payment of fees, students should quote their student identity number so that payments can be matched to the students' record.
