Scrap the unfair €450 fee for Supplemental Exams

This campaign has ended.

Scrap the unfair €450 fee for Supplemental Exams

Scrap the €450 fee for Supplemental Exams (Repeat exams).
Affordable rental options to be introduced for the full academic year.
No more increases to any student fees, in any form.

Why is this important?

Our University should put the welfare of students at the center of everything that it does. We need a freeze on fees for all students and affordable rental options. We are a collective of undergraduate and postgraduate students in Trinity College Dublin who can no longer stand by and watch the commodification of our education.

Last month, in a referendum held by TCDSU 82% of students voted strongly against the implementation of Supplemental Fees. The College Board decided to ignore the voice of the students, and implement Supplemental Fees at a flat rate of €450.

Last year, College signed the Student Partnership Agreement, which promises to promote democracy and ensure that students are stakeholders in decisions that College make. Trinity’s decision to introduce supplemental exam fees is evidence of their continuing disregard for students, their opinions, and their welfare.

Reasons for signing

  • This disgraceful imposition will impact many students but it will impact those of disadvantaged backgrounds more. It feeds the agenda to make third level education the prerogative of the rich. A giant backward step for Trinity.
  • €450 to sit supplemental exams is an outrageous request from college. College is expensive enough without having to worry about paying a ridiculous amount of money for repeats
