Housing is less expensive, even with the euro being about 2 Canadian dollars. Everything else was about the same price as here (or in the States), but in Euros. Food especially is very expensive. And of course, I did a lot of travelling in Europe.

The banking account was free. If you travel, book at least 2 weeks in advance - you can get amazing deals. Especially if you use discount airlines, such as easyjet, ryanair and aerlingus. Eurolines buses are pretty cheap too. And if you'll most use the SNCF (for train travel within France), definitely get the Carte 12-25. You'll save 50% on almost all journeys. You can ust the school's computers for the internet. You can also get a WiFi card from the international office for free (but with a deposit). But WiFi only works in 1 building. If you want internet in your room, it gets expensive (I think 25EUR/mth with limited up/downloads). For the phone: you don't really need one - you can call payphone-to-payphone and use calling cards. If you decide you need one, get a cellphone - they're actually cheaper than a landline. You can get a cheap one at Carrefour and pay as you go. Oh, and North American cell phones don't work in Europe, unless yours is tri-band.

Food and drink, when bought from a supermarket are fairly cheap in France, thus bringing the costs down. Travelling expenses accounted to more than at home, as being in central Europe distances to other European countries are so "short" and travelling easy, and during the year I visited Amsterdam, Paris, Biarritz, French Alps...

Opening a bank account in France is often compicated, bring all official forms you have with you just in case!! Also keep in mind when using "carte bleu", the local bank card, that you might go on debit, although the bank doesn't tell you this when you get the card. And interest rate is high, sure enough...

England is an expensive country, and housing costs are lower in France. Telephone costs were higher as I called the UK from time to time. I spoean more on nightlife because there are so many parties and evenings out that I found myself going to the cashpoint all the time.

Société Générale (large French bank) charge you about 6 euros a month just to have an account with them, which wasn't communicated to those who opened an account. Apply for the CAF; although it takes a long time and it's a hassle, it is worth it. Buy a Carte 12-25 for train travel, as it also gives you money off car hire and Eurostar.

Nightlife in Dublin is unbelievably expensive in Dublin, I can assure you. An open bar night out organised with the school will cost you at most 20€, and you drink as much as you want; In Dublin, every pint costs 5€, and cover charges are not that low. Basically, in Dublin, we don't make allowances for students. Anytime there is cheap drink on offer, you can't get served at the bar, it's simply too crowded.

Stay out of O'Kallaghan's. Buy yourself a six-pack for 2€ in the local épicerie.

I wouldn't have paid rent at home. The exchange rate played a big factor on my epenses. I travelled more than I ever have before. you can get cheap flights to just about anywhere in Europe. It's hard to say no when someone asks you if you want to take a trip to Italy for 50 euros.

Bring peanut butter and soup packets if you really want to save. On the first day of orientation the ESC sets up a table with leftover dishes and appliances for the last semester.

I'm telephoning abroad to speak to my family and my boyfriend which makes things more expensive. I'm also travelling further to get here, although local travel isn't any more expensive. The nightlife is cheaper as most events are organised by the student's union which means that prices are subsidised.

Live with friends, it makes the rent much cheaper.
