the needs abroad in matter of communication are very different,In the UK foods are quite expensive for a lower quality, and that's a shame considering the fact that i m coming from paris, that is more or less the most expensive city of France

Just make sure you have a budgte and you record what your daily expenditure is. Also there are plenty of odd jobs around to do for students, so part-time job is no problem to get at all.

A mobile Sim Card is very cheap in England compared with France (I recomend Virgin mobile). And wanted to enjoy so I went out and travelled a lot. But at the end I spent less than in France cause in France I have no grant while in the UK I had the erasmus grant.

It's hard to open a bank account when you stay only one semester. Tell the bank that you stay one year. Then it's very easy to find a job in Cambridge. You can work flexible for a work agency such as Blue Arrow or Berkley Scott. Various colleges of the University of Cambridge are constantly looking for catering staff, mainly waiters. Introduce yourself in many colleges and ask them if they need staff.

Everything in Britian is at least about twice as expensive (if not more) than in Germany. Quality for money is very low, specially in regards to accomodation.

ALDI in Cambridge helps a lot. Sainbury's in city centre is lot more expensive than the one on Coldhamslane. Fresh and - more or less - reasonably priced vegetables and fruits best to be bought on the market. Eating out is always pretty expensive. Best tip: look for a job or save a lot before going to Cambridge! Good for travel: travelcard for the busses pays of in no time.
