University of Greenwich
1.2/5
Expenses
Main source of funding:
Family
Other sources of funding:

Work opportunities:
I worked during my study abroad experience
Personal spending habits
Food is incredibly expensive. Eating out is not much more expensive than cooking for yourself. Snacks like sandwiches are 3 pounds and are not great quality, 2 Chicken breast fillets are 13 pounds, There was no telephone provided by the univeristy and I had to use a mobile with a calling card. The bill could be 200 pounds a month. I strongly recommend using the internet (for which access is provided) and a software that allows you to make phone calls to a telephone. A Day travel card cost 5.20 pounds, Nightlife: Entry to a venue is 5-10 pounds

Personal comments
Not all cash machines accept foreign credit cards. When I tried to maximise the withdrawal from my credit card and tried something like: withdraw 330 pounds -> no, 320 pounds -> no, 300 punds ->yes 310 pounds -> you can not withdraw cash. There is a limited number of failed attempts to withdraw cash and it does not work for the whole day if the number is exceeded. Always keep cash for an emergency
