The talk of education:More accounts of delays at Susi in processing student grants – and some progress
Applied for Susi third level grant in June. Still no contact. #backwardireland
Called them up today. After waiting 20 minutes I got through to someone. They confirmed they received all my documents and that I should get my confirmation letter in two weeks and this time I have all of that call recorded. Hopefully that’s the only time in my life I’ll have to resort to recording my calls.
Time to give the grants back to the VECs and county councils to process. Scrap Susi and let this be a lesson learned.
I’ve never even got an email or letter to say I was provisionally awarded. I got a letter a few months back saying I had passed the first stage. I got a text today stating they had received all my documents and they would be in contact within two weeks. Anyone know what happens next? Really can’t wait much longer for the grant. I’m just making debt for myself.
Called Susi today, they lost the third birth certificate that I’ve sent in. At this rate I’ll get my grant when I graduate. @Ruthie_Ara
Only in a Government organisation could such incompetence be accepted. If this was a real organisation, someone’s head would roll, and again our taxes are going to fund this incompetence.

Rang them yesterday. They now need a copy of my Leaving Cert and a letter from my old school stating I attended there. Ridiculous, considering I am a masters student and I have already given them a copy of my results and proof of attendance. I still have no student card and can’t access the library.
I just got a letter from Susi saying that my payment is ready.
Just got a text from Susi saying they are going to contact me soon about my grant which had been granted. Bring on the $$.
Responses to last week’s HEA report that Ireland has room for only one major university
HEA report calls for HEA to have more power. *shocker* @Bentonra
And total “local” opposition, naturally. Ireland . . . as usual. @JillKerby
Feedback to our 2012 School League Tables
Most important sentence in ‘IrishTimes’ school league tables is on page eight. “It is only a partial picture.” No credit for places at uni abroad.
Not a fan of newspaper obsession with school league tables. Unnecessary and divisive.
