You are considered an applicant for a second degree course when you have already completed a course of study in tertiary education, and when the degree course you have applied for is undergraduate. In two-tier "consecutive" courses of study, continuation of study after an undergraduate degree is not regarded as a second degree course. In courses of study with a general selection procedure, admission is limited to three per cent of the available places.
The same conditions apply as for an application for a first degree course. Further information may be obtained from the Admissions Office or the Student Advisory Services Bureau.
Students may be charged tuition fees if they already hold a Master's, Diplom or Magister degree or a degree awarded by a church-maintained university or in a course of study with a final state examination, and if the course of study leads to another university degree.
If the first degree is a Bachelor's degree, no fees are currently charged when the second degree course is also a Bachelor course. In two-tier "consecutive" courses of study, continuation of study after an undergraduate degree is not regarded as a second degree course.
Tuition fees will be levied with a tuition fee notice. These are currently capped at €300 per semester.
