The accessibility of student needs
Second-hand text books
KEY:
Very easy.
Minimal effort.
Accessible but required effort.
Almost impossible.
Second-hand household items
Computers / Internet
Administrative
Money from home
Main source of funding:
Personal savings
Other sources of funding:
Family
Personal savings
Work opportunities:
I didn't explore any work options
Personal spending habits:
Food and housing were included in my initial costs for the program. I did not use the telephone nearly as much as I do at home therefore costs were lower. Finally, travel was more expensive because I traveled much more than I would have at home.
Travel: was more expensive than at home.
Nightlife: was the same price as at home.
Food, Overall, Telephone, Housing: was less expensive than at home.
Personal comments:
If you plan to travel a lot it will save you money to buy a Eurail pass. As well, for filling but cheap food there are low-cost tapas and bocadillas.
