You are in a Scandinavian country! the living standard is pretty high compared to most other (European) countries. Especially alcohol and tabaco are heavily taxed! But in many occassions you get a fat discount (-50%) on display of your NORWEGIAN studentcard (trains, bus, museums, travelling arrangements,...) USE IT!

You are best of (and cheapest) when you stay at one of the Studenthomes of SIB (university housing dep.)I stayed at Fantoft, which is the biggest one with most international students (5km from city center). Go to Freetex for second-hand stuff to decorate your new place, or IKEA in Asane (outside Bergen, 20min. by bus)

Norway is a very expensive country when compared to Portugal. Things are more than three times more expensive.

If you have a valid norwegian student card (all the erasmus have) you can have 50% discount on train travels and many discounts in a lot of places.

travelling can be quite cheap, because there are good student reductions. Clothes are not very expansive. Alcohol is VERY expansive.

Norway is just a more expensive country, but ALWAYS ask (everywhere) if they have a student discount; they're often unadvertised!

Even though everyone always heads to IKEA first, check out the local Fretex (Salvation Army) much of its stuff is in good condition, and you can get great cheap Norwegian sweaters there! Try to make your lunches and avoid buying unnecessary things, you'll just have to schlep them home at the end of your stay!
