Finland is more expensive than the Netherlands, and you have to take into consideration, that you have all the time, there is no job or what so ever, you can do whatever you like at any time, and that costs!

Overall costs were slightly higher but this was taken into account with the grant received from Erasmus. Food was expensive, as was eating/drinking out. Small things like taxi's can be costly.

Shop at local markets. Plan bus routes, get yourself a student card to get discounts on trains and buses. Use student offers in bars and clubs.

food and accomodation are a lot cheaper there, however alcohol is a lot more expencive due to the fact it is controlled by the government and only available in one shop called Alco. However you can buy beer in the supermarket and if you recycle your empty bottles they give you money which can be used towards your next bottle of beer! plus you get a brilliant student discount on the express bus, making it really cheap to travel around Finland
