I have the chance to live in my boyfriend's flat, so I don't spend more than in my parents' house! The food is quite cheap, especially in the "students' restaurants"! You can eat Schnizels for very cheap around the University! The nightlife is also very cheap compared to France, although the concept is different; here it's more Pubs than Clubs, that explains the difference of the price you pay (160 ATS in France to get into a Club, and here between 20 ATS and 50 ATS!)

It's good to have money on your bank account for the interest rate! Note: all the question are in the past tense, like it was over, but I'm still in Graz, and I plan to stay here!!!!

The food was a bit cheaper in Austria than here in Finland. However, I was so lazy that most of the time I ate outside so, which wasn´t the cheapest way. My girl friend was in an other country at the same time so of course my phone bills were pretty huge. Housing was a bit cheaper than here in Finland. Nightlife...cheap Beer, but * many times! Austria is ideally located -> my bank account knows that now.

Open your own bank account in Austria. Visa was not valid everywhere so one usually had to carry pretty much cash..

My telephone bill was bigger, because I still had the finnish net and I paid for the calls of my family. Travelling was a must, because Austria is so centrally located and it was easy to travel everywhere. Food is cheaper in Austria than in Finland and my accommodation also. So, overall the costs were less than in Finland.

A surprise was that I spent less money than I thought I would. My cost saving tip is that on grocery stores buy the local brands: they are as good as the others and always cheaper.

I didn't have to pay for the phone or the accommodation at home... The night life is very important in Graz, you have to go out at night. I travelled a lot because we were closed to Budapest, Venice, Vienna, Salzburg, Ljubjana and so on...There are many opportunities to travel cheap but it still costs at lot at the end. But you have to do it.

I could get more than 4000 schillings/week with my visa card. Ask your bank before you leave the country

food, generally costs more and then as a foreigner I didn't know where to go to spend less. Housing, in Modena I did not pay for housing, as I got a local grant which used to give me money and house for free. Nightlife was cheaper as you almost do not have to pay for entering disco-pubs, beer is incredibly good and CHEAP and in general we managed on our own for nightlife...

Travel was cheap because of the short distances between so many different and diverse destinations. Accomodation was somewhat higher than my home in Oklahoma, but about the same as where I live now in Atlanta.

Buy a used bike for warmer weather to get around town. When colder, buy a Montatskarte from the Tabak stores and stay on the busses and Strassenbahns where it is much warmer.
