Student Cost of Living
What is the living cost for students and are there any discounts for students in Ireland? When it comes to living off campus instead of using the room and boarding, students can expect to need around 12,000 EUR per academic year. Just to cover rent and basic necessities.
International students are given the choice to work part-time jobs to help pay off some of the student tuition along with basic day to day needs. As a matter of fact, nearly all of the mentioned universities help students find work while earning their higher education there. Dublin is the capital as well as the bustling city that has become a high tech and real estate establishment.
Dublin is actually the perfect city if students are looking to take a language course on Gaelic or Irish language. Also, students can receive many benefits from the country if they take language courses. This can include receiving a partial percentage off of all annual tuition costs.
