Expenses
Main source of funding:
An ERASMUS grant
Other sources of funding:
Family
Personal savings
Work opportunities:
It was not legal for me to work
Personal spending habits
Everything is double or triple what I pay for at home. That is, however, due to the economic situation in my country of origin and were I from any other European state, I would have not had any financial problems.

Personal comments
Aldi is just around the corner of the Guesthouse. Don't withdraw money from the ATMs when from a home bank - make sure you make an account with the local ones.

Housing
Type of housing: On campus
Arranged by: Host university
If returning, I would choose: On campus
Why?
We lived in the Guesthouse of the University. That was the best part of all - you meet new people, you communicate, you make contacts, you try to find time to study and so on. Overall, private housing when on Erasmus is not a good option. Its better to be with the other students and relate to them all.

Personal comments
The Guesthouse is great. Its at a perfect location - just a few minutes off uni, it has all the amenities one might need, including own TV, clipboard, wireless and so on. There are many facilities available and there is security and clerks 24/7. Everything is taken care off.
