Personal spending habits
Finnish food is a litttle more expensive than in France.
Telephone bills are higher because of international communications. And Internet is useful but you sometimes need to hear your family or boy/girlfriend.
My accomodation was really cheap: 1412 FIM with electricity , heating and water included.
Travelling is one of the main activities for foreign students in Finland. If you want to make the traditional trips, you had better save money before coming. Personnally, I went to Stockholm for a one day trip (125 FIM by boat), Tallinn (35 FIM by slow boat), Saint Petersbourg (around 1200 FIM for a three day trip: everything include even the visa), Lapland (400 FIM by train).
