Food is much more expensive than in Canada. Pretty much everything was more expensive, plus the exchange rate. This was the biggest difference. Nightlife is more expensive, a beer at a club cost 4-5 euros, entrace anywhere from 3-10 euros, and a mixed drink anywhere from 4-8 euros. In a store, a beer costs one euro, bottle of vodka around 10-20 euros (700 mL). I also travelled quite alot, which is why i spent so much more money.

Expect to pay alot for just about everything here. Taxes are high on all items, and the exchange rate makes it even more expensive. To save money try to shop for groceries outside the city center, it will be difficult to transport without a car, but if you have access to one take advantage of the opportunity

No need to buy your own books, just borrow from the school library or photocopy the essential parts. Teachers also give paper handouts and some material is available online.

I spent less in telephone because it was useless than in my home country, I spent less in housing because it was a student housing furthermore in flatmating. I spent more in food and overall because the cost of life is higher then in my country. Finally I spent more in nightlife and travels because I enjoy the life here and I discovered the country and the neighbouring countries.

Finland is a very expensive country: that is why I spent more in food for example. But I live in Paris which is an expensive place as well so the differencce was not that big! I spent more in the travel category because I wanted to discover the country (Lapland, Lakeland) and its region (Russia, Estonia, Sweden)

at home my parents paid everythins, so i don't realize what i'm paying. When you are abroud you take more care of the money and you realize better how much things cost. I was also living in an apartment, and normally I live with my parents...There are a lot of factors.

Food is in general extremely expensive in Finland but costs for phoning are traditionally cheap. Housing was supported. Nightlife because of the alcohol prices and usually I'm not travelling that much at home.
