Food was a lot cheaper in comparison to prices in Ireland. My telephone bill was quite high because i had mobile and often made long international calls(to home). Housing, is cheaper then in Ireland, particularly because I live at home in Ireland but on the whole accommdation was cheaper. Nightlife was extremely cheap in comparison to Dublin City, both eating out and clubbing were cheaper. Travel was great, I went interrailing with friends during the semester break. Aachen is a very central town and they offered a lot of special offers on group trips etc.. In Germany I had a bus and rail semester ticket(part of the college fee) so travel was less expensive, in Ireland we do not receive travel passes.

Nothing stands out except for initial housing expenses. Deposits and rent in advance, furnishing the apartment etc..

Obviously I spent more on my telephone bill because I am always calling my family in the US. I spent more on nightlife and travel because here all of the international students are alone. We are now like a family because we won't be able to see our families for a while. We always are going out together and traveling together. We try to stay busy so that times passes maybe a little quicker, and so that we are also always having fun. I feel that I spend less on food here because the grocery stores are much cheaper and I have also found some relatively cheap restaurants in our area.

It is cheaper to buy a monthly bus pass. It will save you a lot of money.
