the life cost in the UK is higher than in france, so having the same amount of money for a month than i usually have in France i had to be carefull. anyway i am use to be carefull with the money i get now, so i knew were to spend and were not to spend (for example the travel, by train is very very expensive in the UK, cigarettes and alcohol are over taxed)

I would suggest to students from other countries to open up a bank account in England, because if you always take out money from the ATM/ cash point, you get charged an absolute fortune everytime you withdraw money! I lost a lot of money that way.

Using mobile phones (even local connections) is much more expensive in the UK than in Finland. The social life in Sunderland was very lively so it made me spend more. Local travel is cheap, but then long distance travel (by trains and coaches) isn't.
