An ERASMUS grant
Work opportunities:
I didn't want/need to work
Personal spending habits
Food, Housing and Nightlife are all cheaper in France than in England. I spent more on my phone simply as I had a pay as you go French simcard as opposed to a contract, and spent a lot on transport as I travelled extensively, in town however transport on buses is very reasonable.
