  • American Opportunity Tax Credit This is a credit for qualified education expenses paid for an eligible student for the first four years of higher education. You can get a maximum annual credit of $2,500 per eligible student. Make sure you are qualified before claiming the credit.
  • Banking

Some students may be required to open an Irish bank account in order to apply for a visa. Others may just want the convenience of having a local branch. We suggest AIB because they have a branch close to the college located on Baggot St. Lower.

  • Airbnb

This is an affordable way to live like a local anywhere in the world. Your host will often be able to share local knowledge that will make your experience authentic and unique. Be sure to use the map view function to book accommodation in a good location. Only book with hosts that have plenty of good ratings. 

This tool works in several European countries. It connects you with drivers travelling from city to city. Be safe, only book journeys with drivers who have lots of good reviews.

  • Transatlantic Flights

Flights have become much cheaper between Europe and America in recent years. There are a few budget airlines that run surprisingly cheap services, especially if you book months in advance.
