Work opportunities:

Personal spending habits:
I took many trips and spent a lot in travel. I also went out more in France than I did when I was at home. But I did save money by cooking for myself rather than eating out at cafeterias and restaurants. But I found that everyday shopping (groceries, clothes, music, etc.) was generally more expensive in France than in Canada.
Travel, Housing, Nightlife, Overall: was more expensive than at home.
Telephone, Food: was the same price as at home.
Personal comments:
If you study in France for more than 3 months, you may be eligible to apply for lodging assistance through CAF (Caisse d'Allocation Familiales), but you must have a residence permit. As for travelling, if you're lucky, you may catch seat sales on Ryanair or Easyjet, two low cost internet airline companies, and save tons of money on airfare.

Personal spending habits:
I didn't own a cell phone while on exchange, so I didn't spend on that. I shared a room, so that worked out a lot cheaper than it would've been otherwise. Nightlife, you walk everywhere so no need for taxis, and there's never any cover which is a plus. And I took the opportunity to travel more often that I do at home, and that was expensive considering I was working in Cdn dollars.
Food, Housing, Overall, Travel: was more expensive than at home.
Nightlife: was the same price as at home.
Telephone: was less expensive than at home.
Personal comments:
If you can and you're willing, share a room! This will obviously cut your res expenses in half.

Personal spending habits:
Lille is less than three hours away from several metropolitan cities: Paris, London, Brussels, Amsterdam, Luxemborg. There are also numerous charming villages that are worthy of exploration as well. Travelling on the train is inexpensive with the carte 12-25. This is different from the U.s. where everything is so spread out and traveling is quite expensive.
Travel: was more expensive than at home.
Housing, Nightlife: was the same price as at home.
Food, Telephone, Overall: was less expensive than at home.
Personal comments:
If you travel with student organizations, it becomes extremely cheap to travel.
