Expenses
Main source of funding:
Government assistance
Other sources of funding:
Government assistance
An ERASMUS grant
Work opportunities:
I didn't want/need to work
Personal spending habits
I spent more on food and drink because my room was tiny and there was no common recreation areas in halls/on campus so going out for coffee or lunch was an essential activity to allow me to get out and see friends. Alcohol is more expensive in bars especially as there is no student union or student nights at bars/clubs.

Personal spending habits
I needed to buy prepaid phone cards to make calls. I went out more often, as exchange students do. I traveled much more, and train tickets can be expensive. But as for the food, I cook, so I can be selective as to price and quality. And the accomodation was part of my program's expenses.

Occasionally, you have to pay the bank to have an account. Also, you are often only paid once a month, and it sometimes takes several months before you receive your first payment.

I think I just wasn't used to paying for everything on my own. When at home or at the university in the states, everything was already paid for.

Make sure to try and take advatange of any student discounts (if you're a student of course!). Travel by train can be a lot cheaper if you buy a student travel membership in France.

Take a bunch of money. Be under 26 :), I was not. Buy a Eurail pass so you can travel without spending tons of money. Research calling cards before you go, you may find better deals than the ones you can find there.

Were in a remote area which was in the suburbs called Villejean. It is not safe to travel back there late at night, let alone as a girl on her own. Therefore was somewhat restricted with nightlife. Food etc and the cost of living is generally cheaper in France

More travel meant more expenses. I telephoned less because I was so far away and it would have been quite expensive, so I just did without.
