Book an Appointment

The Booking Form for the 2022/23 academic year is open. You may find the online calendar is full but new appointments open daily so please keep checking. Also please read the changes to SAF applications below as this may change your need for an appointment now. 

SAF Update -

  • Students can apply online for a new Means Tested fund as part of the SAF.
  • This means that if you were awarded the Special Rate or Band 1 rate of SUSI or your household income was under €40,875 (gross) in 2021 you can apply online at SAF without meeting the Student Budgeting Advisor.
  • If the household income was over €40,875 (gross) in 2021 or there has been a change in circumstances please Book an Appointment to discuss SAF with the Student Budgeting Advisor. 
  • We hope to open the SAF in early October. 

The Student Budgeting Advice Service is very busy at the start of the academic year so you may find the calendar is full. New appointments are added daily and funding stays open all year so please be patient. 

Some students are having issues opening the Booking Form using Apple devices (iphones, ipads or Apple mac laptops). Please try using an android phone or tablet or non Apple laptop to fill in the form.

You will find a range of resources, links and information on these webpages to help you enjoy life as a University student. If in doubt talk to your Student Budgeting Advisor - there is no judgement only advice and options. You might find what you are looking for on our FAQ's  page.

You are advised to check this website regularly for any updates on the Service for the Academic Year.
