In most cases, students who enrolled for less than 1 EFTS (120 points) of fees-free study in 2018 will have some remaining fees-free entitlement in 2019. This remaining entitlement is called carryover.
For example, if you enrolled for 0.9 EFTS of fees-free study in 2018 you will generally have 0.1 EFTS of carryover in 2019.
The Government will tell us how much of your fees will be covered by carryover once you have completed enrolment for 2019. If you intend to pay for the rest of your 2019 fees via Student Loan, we encourage you to apply to StudyLink as soon as possible.
Further information about carryover is available on the Tertiary Education Commission website:
If you are unsure how much of your fees-free entitlement you have used in 2018, contact the Fees-Free helpdesk: 0800 687 775.
