we have two restaurants but unfortunatelly I m not a good cooker. I think there are big differences between turkey and holland about food prices. And than a student can easily rent a flat with 100 euro for a mount. travel prices and nightlife are expensive in my country. railway system is awesome in holland and europe.

maybe you know I give my rent with delay. It was horrible. my family sent me my money but I couldn't take it easily. And I will not forget, When I was coming back to Turkey I had only 50 cent. :)

The Netherlands is cheaper to live as a student than it is in the UK. Perhaps this would be different when living and working? When one does not have to taake into account of Income and direct taxes and strong pound means the price of goods are relatively cheaper abroad. Saying that, removing exchange rates from the equasion Holland is still cheaper in real terms in many areas. The only area where there is parity is when going out, bars and clubs are quite expensive and comparible in price to UK.

In Arnhem the bus service is good. So use it. Buy a Strippen card, this will give you more journeys for less than paying everytime you use the bus. Buy these from newsagents, and try using your ISIC to get the student price. This is a further reduction. However, you are not really allowed this as you will not hold a Dutch Student travel card. Depending on the driver (most don't ask) you will get away with it because you can claime you are an ignorant foreigner who didn't know. Buy a train card too. for 100 guilders/£30 (not sure what it is now in Euros) you will get reductions on you ticket fares. This lasts for a year and allows the card holder and up to 4 others to travel. All benefit from reduced fares. Its very easy to visit places in Germany and beyond from Arnhem. The mainline train from Amsterdam to Frankfurt stops at Arnhem. Koln is near by to and is wortha visit.

I think that i spent less money here in the netherlands due to the fact that every thing in the uk is so expensive. I spend a lot of money back home as I am always out with my friends and here in the netherlands i have spent more time studying

the cost of living in the netherlands is slightly higher than back home if currency exchange is taken into consideration. traveling was an equally important experience of studying abroad in in relation to the amount of traveling done and the places visited, travel expenses seem to be less. eficient transportation systems and access to many european countries and cities naturally added to this perception.

if you enjoy drinking, start at your place with some friends. alcohol proves to be extremely expensive in the pubs and bars.

I found the Netherlands to be a very inexpensive country compared to the UK and did not change my buying habits, the cost of goods and services were just less expensive

I would say to keep cash around. To save money do what you would regularly do at home to save money.
