The Cost of Education in Ireland

The Cost of Education campaign highlighted the increasing cost of sending children to primary, secondary and third level education, and drove awareness of the benefits of starting a Zurich savings policy.

Education in Ireland can be expensive. The cost of putting just one child through school can easily run into tens of thousands of euro. If you have two or more children then you're going to have to dig even deeper to sustain the cost of their educational needs over the long-term.

Research carried out by Zurich on the Cost of Education in Ireland reveals what parents estimate the cost of education to be and what the actual cost is. The research also highlights that expenses incurred for children in secondary school almost double that of primary and third level expenditure is triple that of secondary. When it comes to financing children’s education, the higher the educational level, the greater need to save for this expense.
