Sweden is very expensive in particular when you want to go out a lot. In most clubs you have to pay an entrance of about 6-9€ plus 2€ for your jacket. Alcohol is also very expensive, don´t be surprised to pay up to 7€ for one beer. But in the course of time you will find cheap places to go out. I think to telephone is less expensive than in my home country.

Try to find pubs to go out not at the "Avenue". The cheapest supermarket is "Willy´s". Try to get a bike from one of the students leaving Gothenburg.

Life standards are far higher in Sweden than in Portugal. One must do a financial effort in order to support himself on scandinavian countries. I felt like most of the foreign students had the same problem.

I didn't discover any in 6 months. Anyway, I was able to save a lot of money as my housing fee was entirely supported by the host family (except food, clothing and other primary goods). Food is not that expensive in small supermarkets in the outskirts of the main avenues.

Nightlife is in general more expensive than in my home country - especially the alcohol. I had a lot of travel expenses, I do not have so much at home at the same time - that counts too.

Barcelona is not a cheap city for students if you live in a student flat or residence, so the prices here were quite reasonable for me. Food and transportation is more expensive, but you will learn how to save money...

A private foundation offers every year a grant to exchange students, what it is very cool. Not so many negative financial surprises.

I lived with my parents at home so Sweden was more expensive (it was free at my parents ;-)) and i was travelling much more... so i spend more money on it - easy like that.
