Life as an International Expat

The number of international students traveling to Ireland for third-level education has significantly increased, with China being the most popular according to a study.

Irish universities have dedicated more resources to promoting themselves abroad as a destination for international students for a long time.

 Non-European Economic Area (EEA) students pay higher fees, generally of between €9,000 and €25,000, but for some courses such as medicine are about €54,000 a year.

The number of international students coming to Ireland increased by 45 percent between 2013 and 2017, according to the new report.

The study was conducted by the European Migration Network, which is part of the Economic and Social Research Institute (ESRI) think tank.
