The average debt of Irish University students rose to €12,000 this year. On top of paying yearly registration fees upfront, this can add an additional €3,000 per year for Irish students. With that in mind, almost 10,000 Irish students across the country have joined the 2.5 million students seeking Sugar Daddies as an alternative method of financial aid.
Irish students pay some of the highest fees in Europe, and the world. With some media outlets predicting costs could increase even further. While many students resort to loans and/ or part-time jobs, some are looking for another way to get on top of their student loan debt.
