The majority of day-to-day expenses were more because of the exchange rate and the low value of the Australian dollar. Travel was cheaper though, because of the close proximity to other countries.

Personal comments
Travelling to other countries was relatively cheap for me. Food and drink were quite expensive, especially in terms of eating out, this surprised me. Also, phoning Australia was very expensive compared with that in Canada or the USA, but this was due to the fact that a fixed phone was not available to me therefore I was reliant upon a mobile. Cost-saving tip is to buy fruit, vegies and meat at the local market rather than the supermarket. I also found transport quite expensive, which surprised me.

Because in my home country I do not have to pay for my accomodation as I live with my family. Besides, I do not have to spend money on food because my parents buy everything we need. I do not travel in Russia so much, but here I have been to a lot of places and cities already.Telephone service here is much more expensive than in Russia.And I spend more because I communicate a lot here with my friends and often call to my family.

The dutch have intricate systems in place, which, as at the end, will have foreigners pay more for everything. Even if you learn dutch, like me, and get into it, you will only realise the schematics behind it and that there is nothing you can do about it, unless you become a dutch citizen yourself, which would be very idiotic.

Also, if you are intending to be a law student at the Hogeschool, know that the teachers and founders of the young law program, have created an "institute" -which really isn't one- through which you have to buy your law and case collections, priced anywhere between 20 to 100 EUR each, and that you have to buy about 20 every semester, and that there is not work of the teachers involved, because these books are merely "collections", and that you are not allowed you use anything but these collections in the exams, and that they have no value whatsoever afterwards, because the following years will have updated versions, and are not allowed to bring 2nd hand collections or older versions, and lastly that, because these collections have no value to academia, nobody will want to buy them off of you. So you end up paying several thousands of euros to said institute, which will use the money to further the careers of your shitty teachers.

Food is quite expensive in the Netherlands around 1.5 time the prices we have in France. Accomodation is also more expensive because Dutch government doesn't provide any financial help for accomodations whereas the French government does.

You can get a reduction card when you buy your food in Albert Heijn. Thanks to it you can get reductions on specific products. It's always good to take it.

Usually buying a bike facilitates travel a lot, but they are often stolen. Otherwise some good travel seasonal passes exist. Try to make copies of textbooks if you really don't need the whole book (for some courses for sure). Investigate budget travel, book early

Compared to the UK, some aspects are cheaper in continental Europe such as food and clothing. I spent more on travel to make the most of my time in the Netherlands by travelling around the country and to the neighbouring countries.
