Education costs. Savings matter. Save smarter.

Published on:

According to Aviva’s Cost of Education research:

  • Just under half of parents (49%) say they have made no financial preparations to meet the cost of putting their children through third level education
  • On average, parents expect to pay out €5,122 a year to send a child to a third level college or university. If the student has to move away from home to go to college, the expected cost is almost double, at €10,125 (that’s over €40,000 for a four year degree per child!).
  • Over a third of families intending to put children through third level education have savings earmarked for this purpose
