Denmark is more expensive than Australia although mobile phone costs are pretty cheap (in Australian money, my contract was $10 a month, and about 5c per SMS. Call costs were also cheap but not for international calls, it's much better to buy a phone card and use a public phone. DTU has some public phones on campus.) Meat is also expensive, especially because they don't have real sausages! Travel is more expensive but you can usually ride your bike to uni so it's free (unless you get a flat, or forget your bike lights!). Travel into Copenhagen by train or bus is reasonable. Beer can be expensive, but it's pretty reasonable at the student bars and the Moose during happy hour.

I have a St. George bank account in Australia and to withdraw money directly from that account (via VISA) cost about $4 per withdrawal. If you have a lot of money it's cheaper to open a Danish bank account and transfer it there. But transfer it all at once if possible as I got charged service fees by St. George, Nordea and Danske Bank meaning it cost about $30 for the transaction. If you expect to make more than 2 or 3 long train trips (e.g. outside Copenhagen to Jutland or Roskilde etc.) then buy a DSB Wildcard at the start of your trip. It gives you a big discount. Also, if you know if advance you are travelling by train try and get a DSB Orange ticket. They are a lot cheaper. If you're travelling around Europe don't forget to check Ryanair, EasyJet, Virgin, etc. There are always some bargains. We were all surprised how much money we spent on beer! Think twice before shouting! On our trip around Sweden and Norway we just camped and ate rice. So cheap and so good. You probably won't be eligible for a Dankort so you'll need to take cash with you nearly everywhere (most supermarkets don't take credit cards). Can be a bit annoying when you're in the supermarket queue and you suddenly realise you have no cash!

Food is more expensive right here especially restaurants this is why I'm more cooking at home to save some cash. Accomodation is more expensive since in my Home Country I have my own app. I don't pay any rentals as for traveling well there is no country that beats Poland in its cheap communication. Denmark has a very good network but also very expensive. I great solution is the bicycle it is just great to cycle here especially when you think of all the cash you are saving

Buy a bike from the Police Auction and go ecological.If you are a good cook like me then cook your own food. Supermarket food is cheap especially from shops such as ALDI and NETTO. If you are using the trains a lot ( not the S-trains) buy a wild card for discounts. As for parties everyday there is a place where you can go for free. Just check the places and you'll be always on the plus. Check SHuset in Copenhagen on Wednesdays and Park Cafe on thursdays etc...

Because everything is much more expensive in Denmark. And I think that I did less than I usually do in my home country.

Not really, but before going shopping, it's good to study the prices. For groceries store, let's go to Netto or Aldi. Choose cleverly the place to go out because some of them are free somme of the nights of the week. e.g. Vega for disco on Fridays and Saturdays. Student House on Wednesday evening

MOST OF THEM ARE COSTS THAT I DON'T TAKE INTO ACCOUNT WHEN I'M AT HOME BECAUSE I'M NOT TAKING CARE OF THEM (FOOD, HOUSING,...) BUT THE PRICES IN OTHER SUBJECTS SUCH AS NIGHT LIFE ARE MUCH MORE EXPENSIVE THAN HERE. ON THE OTHER HAND, I'VE NOT HAD MANY OPORTUNITIES TO TRAVEL HERE AND IN DENMARK I TOOK THE OPORTUNITY OF TRAVELLING A LOT.

I couldn't get money in Sweden in a ATM with my Visa card, maybe because it is a debit card, but I didn't have such problem in Denmark. This was a specific problem, in general I have no problems.

Prices for food and drink were higher than those at home and enevitably had to pay more for them. Entrance fees to nightclubs etc are also more expensive than those at home so my social life became quite expensive
