Student spending is composed of 5 main elements: Rent & bills, Food, study materials, University fees and social.

Average spending costs:

• Rent: 300 euro for a single room in a shared apartment
• Bills: (like gas, electricity, heating): aprox. 30 euro/month
• Food: if you cook you can save by buying in the supermarket 200 euros/month
• Study Materials: are not a real expense because the books which is the major cost can be bought used and resold back to the next year students.
• Social Miscellaneous: is something that varies from person to person. Wednesdays are usually a student night. Shots cost around 1 euro, a pint of beer costs about 5 euro, a bottle of wine in a pub/bar (to share with friends) 15-20 euro. Or you can go to local supermarkets to more reasonable prices.

Total Spending: 700-800 euros/month

When you plan your stay, take into account that during the first month you will be spending x2-3 times more because you’ll need to leave a security deposit for the apartment( which is usually 2-3 months rent), to buy some basic things for the apartment ( especially if you choose one without any furniture) and on “newcomer expenses” because it will take you some time to find the less expensive supermarket etc.
Be sure that you have enough money for around 2 months when you come, even if you plan to work or get scholarship, in order to have some financial security.

We advise that you take with you a minimum of 800 euros in cash for preliminary expenses
