Germany is generally much cheaper than Britain for everything. My travel expenses were more because at home I study at my home university and I wanted to travel whilst abroad as getting anywhere from Scotland is expensive.

find out what the program will provide you with. The UMASS program provided bedding and most of the kitchens were all stocked. Freiburg has many fairs and fleemarkets during spring and fall, which are good sources of 'stuff' for your place.

Clothing and food are more expensive in Germany. Travel is about equal to here, but there is more oppurtunity and motivation to do things.

Watch the exchange rate. Don't plan on buying too many articles of clothing or furniture. Bring as much stuff with you that you can.

I didn't explore any work options

Food from supermarkets is very good value. Obviously, i was making international calls, which i don't do at home. Travel was expensive as i wasn't there for long enough for it to be worth getting a railcard.

food was a bit more expensive, but also because students eat warm meals in the afternoom at the campus. I spent more in nightlife because in Wageningen there are more cheap student clubs, and most places do not charge you entrance fees

The means are more efficient than in Italy. If somenthing is efficient, it means that there a lot of people that work and the need to be maintened, therefore there are more costes to mantain.
