You made it! You are soon to realise your study abroad dream with this offer letter from an Irish university. Now you wanted to send money to your university for the tuition fees but there are some instructions on your offer letter - asking you to pay your fees via PaytoStudy.
And we're going to show you how.
Ok, so what is this PaytoStudy facility?
What are the benefits of PaytoStudy to students?
- Avail lower exchange rate for tuition fee payment
- Ensuring that your Irish university will receive the full amount that you have paid (Because in the past, without PaytoStudy, Irish bank would charge up to €40 for transaction fee! Students ended up paying more)
- Free of charge to use
- Receive receipts within 48 hours from PaytoStudy, together with 24 hours customer service support
Let's begin. step 1. Open your offer letter.
Open your offer letter from your email inbox. You can see a link in the offer letter, asking you to click and pay fees. (See image above)
Step 2. PaytoStudy page dedicated to your university.
For instance, if you're going to pay your tuition fees towards DIT, clicking into the link should let you see a page like this (Image above)
Now start entering your details. Name, address, email address and etc.

4. Course fees? We encourage students to pay full tuition fees before flying to Ireland.
But you are also able to make deposit payment - half of your fees first if you like.
For example. If your full fees are €12,500, you can pay €12,500 straight away on PaytoStudy OR pay half which is €6,250. Just make sure you pay the other half before you fly.
IMPORTANT: Pay by Wire Transfer or Credit Card/Debit Card?
You have 2 choices - pay your fees in wire transfer with USD (also known as bank transfer/ telegraphic transfer) or pay your fees in your local currency (For example Ringgit) with your Credit Card.
The amount due to pay in USD or Ringgit will be reflected on the page according to the currency presently. See 2 images below:

Step 7 - PaytoStudy bank account details
Why do you need the information above?

Remember the PaytoStudy bank account details in step 7? This is where you need to fill them!
IMPORTANT: If your bank wire transfer form did not ask for some of the bank account details in step 7, make sure you still WRITE them ALL in the form! Find empty blank spaces on the form and fill them in.
Tip: Try to be there at the bank before 3pm Malaysia time. Sometimes the transfer counter closes around 3:30pm, yikes!
Remember to put in your reference number in the bank transfer form so PaytoStudy can identify the money coming from YOU.
Tip: You can find your PaytoStudy reference number in Step 7 image above (Last 4 row)
