I'm going to be doing a traineeship with UCC's speech and hearing sciences department from June until August this summer. I've been trying to find accommodation over this time, and I've noticed that most places charge around 150 euros a week.
Erasmus is only giving me 874 euros for the entire trip, and that's supposed to cover flight costs as well, so I don't know how I'm supposed to pay for this? I also won't be able to get a part-time job, seeing as I won't be able to apply for an Irish bank account in only two months...
Does anyone know if it's possible to find cheaper accommodation for two months in Cork (preferably near UCC), or is this the best that I'm going to get?
What are the downsides?
