3.8/5
Expenses
Main source of funding:
Family
Other sources of funding:
none
Work opportunities:
I didn't explore any work options
Personal spending habits
I used pay by the minute instead of a contract for a phone because I was only there for a short period of time and consequently it ended up being more expensive. I had the opportunity to travel throughout Europe and I don't do a lot of traveling at home throughout the school year, so that was more expensive than usual.

Telephone/travel obviously more expensive. Housing much cheaper, as was food. Nightlife was also cheaper but I went out a lot more frequently therefore probably spent more than I would at home.

the housing service of the university is better to be left out - is just arranging the most expensive accomodations of the whole town!
