Linguistic?

Linguistic

The Linguistic's interests are usually focused on ideas and information exchange. They tend to like reading a lot, and enjoy discussion about what has been said. Some will want to write about their own ideas and may follow a path towards journalism, story writing or editing. Others will develop skills in other languages, perhaps finding work as a translator or interpreter. Most Linguistic types will enjoy the opportunity to teach or instruct people in a topic they are interested in.

Grants & Finance

The Irish League of Credit Unions reports that nine out of ten parents support their child through third-level education, contributing an average of €428 a month. When tuition and registration fees are added into the mix, the average cost of going to college in Ireland is reported to be almost €10,000 a year. The latest Dublin Institute of Technology (DIT) Cost of Living Survey found that the average cost for students living away from home in Dublin is €11,766 per year.

Every year around 20% of students drop out of college, often due to financial pressure, yet, only one-third of students are eligible for the full SUSI student grant.

It is well worth taking a look at the other opportunities available to supplement costs in some way. In this area, you will find useful information on Student Finance, Disability and Financial Support, and Scholarships and Award Schemes.
