Work opportunities:

Personal spending habits
At home University/housing/food is included in a fee that my parents pay. So the food is cheaper in Turkey but I had to pay it from my own money. Furthermore I spended more money on random things, more than I would do in Holland.

Personal comments
I am not sure whether it is cheaper to cook your own food or buy it in restaurants (10 Lira's for an all-included diner on the one hand and initial purchases of hot plate etc. for own cooking on the other hand). Think smart before you go to Istanbul. Clothes are very cheap here, you might bring your own laptop/telefone/hotplate with you..
