This research paper presents an insightful investigation into the perceptions and ethical

considerations of students regarding the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) tools in academia, particularly

focusing on the University of Limerick in Ireland. Herein, AI tools like OpenAI's ChatGPT have emerged

as valuable assets in promoting interactive learning and enhancing student engagement. Thus, this

research aimed to explore the privacy and ethical considerations students have regarding the use of AI

tools in education. Using a quantitative methodological approach, the study solicited the attitudes,

opinions, and patterns of students towards AI utilities. The study revealed intriguing perspectives on

data privacy concerns associated with AI tools. Students from technology and science-focused schools

displayed a higher degree of concern, suggesting their deeper understanding of potential privacy

implications. Conversely, students from arts, humanities, and social sciences, and law politics & public

administration displayed slightly lower levels of concern.
