Naturalist?

Naturalist

Not surprisingly, some aspect of the natural sciences will run through the Naturalist's interests - from ecological awareness to nutrition and health. People with an interest in horticulture, land usage and farming (including fish) are Naturalists.

Some Naturalists focus on animals rather than plants, and may enjoy working with, training, caring for, or simply herding them. Other Naturalists will prefer working with the end result of nature's produce - the food produced from plants and animals. Naturalists like solving problems with solutions that show some sensitivity to the environmental impact of what they do. They like to see practical results and prefer action to talking and discussing.

Student Grants - SUSI

SUSI (Student Universal Support Ireland) is Ireland’s single national awarding authority for all higher and further education grants. 

The online application system for new and renewal grant applications for the 2019/2020 academic year will open on Thursday the 11th April, 2019. SUSI offers funding to eligible students in approved full-time third-level education in Ireland and also, in some cases, funding for students studying outside the State. We offer support to all types of students, from school leavers to mature students returning to education.

SUSI is the new centralised online system for processing grant application forms. To view the online application form click here.

The Grant scheme is made up of 2 components:

  • A Maintenance Grant and
  • A Fee Grant.

The Maintenance Grant is a contribution towards the student’s living costs, while the Fee Grant can cover any of the following 3 elements:

  • Tuition fees
  • Student contribution and
  • Cost of essential field trips.

In general, if you qualify for a maintenance grant you will also qualify for whatever elements of a fee grant apply to your situation.

NB: Before making an application, students are encouraged to refer to the Eligibility Reckoner provided on the SUSI website. The eligibility reckoner is provided by SUSI to assist students in deciding whether they should apply for a student grant. It provides a quick indication of eligibility for grant funding based on the answers given to 10 questions without completing and submitting  a full online grant application.
