Main source of funding:
An ERASMUS grant
Other sources of funding:
Personal savings<br> Government assistance
Work opportunities:

Personal spending habits
I spent more on accomodation, because the room I got was a bad deal, but I didn't know any better when I got it, and speaking very basic Spanish only didn't exactly help either. I spent more on Nightlife and Travel, because I went out more (Barcelona does that to you) and did more travelling (you would obviously want to see more of the country you're staying in if you're there for a year). Travelling within Barcelona (public transport) is fairly cheap though.

Food was cheaper. For my mobile I normally have a contract in Holland and there I had a pre-pay card. Accomodation there was smaller and therefor cheaper. I went out more, maily becuase of the wether and boring room mates. I traveled more because I was in another country, although the metro was cheaper than my public transportation card in the Netherlands.

There are many free of charge cultural events, depending on the institution; you have to go to museums and other places and just ask if and when there are any events for free
