Cost of Studying in Ireland
To study in Ireland, the first step is to secure a valid study visa and that comes with its own costs (approx. €60). Feel free to consult your IDP counselor for the latest updates and information on the visa application process and related costs.
Higher education institutions offer accommodation in student residence halls, which usually costs above the European average of 200 – 300 EUR. It is often difficult to find a place because the number of places is limited, and the demand is high.
Apart from residence halls, you can rent/share an apartment or choose to live with an Irish family.
