Report shows cost of attending third level in Galway €15k per year

Galway Bay fm newsroom – A new report has found that attending third level education in Galway costs around €15k per year.

Research from Switcher.ie looked at factors including accommodation, groceries, transport and entertainment costs.

€15, 088 is what Switcher.ie say it’ll cost on average for a student to attend college in Galway every year.

The figures are compiled based on the cost of fees, accommodation, utilities, groceries, transport, entertainment, and the gym.
