Internet and phone bills!!! AND DON'T GET AN OVERDRAFT!! decouvertes (as they are called) are evil evil things!! I'm still paying mine off. The french system is very different to the one in UK. They don't tend to tell you that you are over your limit and let you keep on spending (and trust me you will spend!)and then they will suddenly ask for your card back and bombard you with letters etc. I didn't get an Erasmus grant so I had to depend on myself, which was why i got an overdraft out. Seriously a bad idea if you are a spendthrift. Honestly though, you will be better off without. Plus, your grant should be sufficient. :)

The exchange rate between the franc and the dollar was not very good at the time of my program. Also, housing was very expensive. I travelled more while I was there, so that cost me more money.

The SecuritÚ Sociale program in France will pay part of any student's housing, including international students. Check bank rates before choosing a bank in France; most have hidden costs, such as fees to close the account.

I spent less on food than at home because although I did eat out quite frequently, I was able to eat at the 'Resto U', which costs under 2 pounds for a 3-course meal! I spent more on my mobile phone than back in the UK (I think!) because of phone calls to friends and fa;ily in the UK. Housing here is 4 times cheaper than in the South of England; I spent just as much money on going out as I do back home! Strasbourg is at the heart of Europe so it would have been a shame to waste an opportunity to visit all those wonderful Benelux countries, so I spent quite a fair amount on travelling!

Be prepared to spend around 2000 Euros on intial expenses(travel, accommodation, registration, acquisition of various cards, etc.) Also make sure that you plan your budget before leaving for your host country or you'll soon find that you've spent your ERASMUS grants and student loan all at once!

In general, the cost of living was less than at home, especially regarding housing - so one could do more on the same budget.
