Accommodation

We also provide accommodation for the overseas student who is coming to Ireland for language courses. We have carefully selected each of our Irish Host Families/ Hostels / Private Accommodation to ensure excellent standards and that you are provided with friendly and comfortable accommodation.

Finding suitable accommodation while you study at Student Campus is relatively easy. Both extensive and competitively priced accommodation can be arranged for the student on request. All accommodation will be provided in self-catered houses/hostels/private accommodation and flats. There is a range of private housing and family accommodation in Limerick area surrounding the campus. If you would prefer any of these accommodation, the School can help you find a suitable place by providing you with guidance notes and up to date listings of available properties.

This may be an effective way for you to improve your English, learn about daily life in Ireland, and meet new, friendly people. Host Families/Hostels/ Private Accommodation also offer a more stable and secure environment for learners coming to study in Ireland.

Typically, a host family consists of an Irish family hosting a student in their home while the student attends classes in Ireland. Our college teaches English language skills in the classroom and Students practice these skills by speaking and communicating with the host family/friendly environment in the hostel or private accommodation. This makes classes fun and enjoyable, but also extremely effective.

Health Insurance

Health Insurance is an Insurance policy you buy which means that if you become ill during your time in Ireland you won't have to pay for medical costs. Non-European Students are required by law to take out a health insurance policy. Student Campus can arrange general Medical Insurance on behalf of its Students. Please ask your marketing agent for more information related to this.

If you come from one of the EU member states, you are entitled to pay the same fees as an Irish person for visits to the hospital or the doctor. Make sure you request an E111 card before you arrive. Be aware though, that going to the doctor in Ireland costs around €50-60, which you may have to pay even with an E111 card. Buying health insurance (or travel insurance for a short course) may bring you peace of mind.

Please note: In respect of any claim made in relation to your policy, you would still need to pay any invoice given by the hospital and then submit it to the insurance company for a refund. Full details can be obtained upon request.

Many travel insurance policies will cover medical expenses, but only for the first 15 to 30 days from your arrival in the country. Once you are a student in Ireland, you will be officially resident here, so you will need health Insurance.
