Ludwig Maximilians Universität München, Munich, Germany
Humanities, Undergraduate, Erasmus
University of Warwick
3.8/5
Expenses
Main source of funding:
Family
Other sources of funding:
Personal savings<br> 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.

Purchase a Students' Coach Card at the very beginning if you plan to travel around in Britain. National Express provides a very good coach network, especially to/from airports.

Because English currency is stronger than the "peseta", so everything seems to be more expensive, apart from the flight tickets!
