Personal comments:
Coventry is not a very beautiful place and has not got that many restaurants or nightclubs but there are some nice pubs and in the towns around Coventry (Stratford, Leamington Spa etc) you can find very nice places to eat out or to just go for a drink.

Language of instruction: English
Was learning English a key decision factor?
Yes, I wanted to improve my English

My level after: At ease in most situations
Personal comments:
The overall language and communication experience at the University is satisfactory. The class was reasonally misxed and provided a good language environment, with one third native speakers and two third international students. The language center was also supportive, with a range of free English courses running through the year. In addition, there was a great deal of interactions between the university and local communities.

EXPENSES    
by littlepebble, Ludwig Maximilians Universität München, Munich, Germany
Humanities, Erasmus
The accessibility of student needs
Second-hand text books
KEY:
Very easy.
Minimal effort.
Accessible but required effort.
Almost impossible.
Second-hand household items
Computers / Internet
Administrative
Money from home
Main source of funding:
Family
Other sources of funding:
Personal savings
An ERASMUS grant
Work opportunities:
I worked during my study abroad experience
Personal spending habits:
Food is much more expensive here than it is in Germany and travel and housing as well. But I have a Young Persons Railcard which gives you up to 30% off all train fares and booking early is a way to ensure you get the cheapest tickets. The yearly (or termly) bus pass that you need when you don't have a car or bike comes with a discount coach card (30% off National Express tickets) but is quite expensive.
Housing, Overall, Travel, Food: was more expensive than at home.
Nightlife, Telephone: was the same price as at home.
Personal comments:
Household items can often be bought in charity shops .. and glasses and crockery are often fairly cheap at the beginning of term. The supemarket at the university is comparatively cheap as well.
