Students Info

For information about ASAI events and other activities please click other key section above. Here below we are in process of putting useful information particularly to new students’ accommodation, part-time jobs, and health and finance management.

Accommodation

The single most important gateway for locating accommodation in Dublin is www.daft.ie, At ASAI we also receive announcements from people looking for roommates or students wanting other students to rent their rooms temporarily or permanently. Please send us an email if you are looking for someone to share accommodation with or if you have vacant accommodation.

Part-time jobs

More than often while studying in Ireland one needs to supplement income by working part time. The most useful information on getting jobs for new comers is to ask other students who are in college or those who have left where they work at and if there is possibility to work there also. In addition here are some other useful links for job search.

Security and safety

It is important that one is safe and secure in his or her environment. To avoid accidents it is important to observe security and safety regulations in buildings, on roads and while walking. Awareness is the watchword when it comes to being secure and safe. In case of an accident the Irish emergency number is 999 and 112.

Health affairs

 Good health is essential to living and being successful in studying. For healthful living students are advised to maintain and improve physical, mental and social health. Eating balanced diet particularly that includes plenty of fruits and vegetable is vital for keeping well. Exercise is important too! In colleges and universities the first stop for health issues will be campus doctors and various confidential services for advice to students’ physical, mental health, including psychological and emotional issues. Below are more useful links concerning physical, mental and social health for students.

Epidemic Up- to – dates!

While there no any epidemics at the moment, such as   flu’s    students are advised to observe strict hygiene practices at all time, key here is cleaning hands all the time! This help to avoid catching many of the transmitted viruses and Bacteria- a major cause of infections.
