Fees and Financial Assistance


We have two fee types here at Accounting Technicians Ireland.

Professional fees are paid by all Year 1 and Year 2 students. This covers your registration, exams, course textbooks and other learning and student supports available.

Tuition fees are paid by Year 1 and Year 2 students studying directly with us through our ATI Online programme. The tuition fees cover each of your four modules and associated tutorials, lectures, and e-learning resources.

If you are studying with one of our partner colleges for our September intake, you will pay tuition fees directly to them upon registering. Once you have secured your place, you can register via our website to pay your professional fees and to receive your ATI student registration number. It is this number which is used for your exams and will provide you with access to your student TouchPoint portal.

We offer a stepped payment option for both our professional fee and tuition fees. You will need to select this at the point of registration if you wish to avail of it.
