Self-Funding and Loans
We have done a break down of the usual living costs below:
In general, our students spend €3000- €5000 per year on living expenses.
Living costs in European cities are very reasonable, but the monthly amount can vary depending on the lifestyle of each international student. Nevertheless, with €300-€500 per month, an international student can live very comfortably and enjoy affordable university education anywhere in Europe.
Below are the approximate student living costs of living in a European City (Bulgaria, Romania, Poland, Hungary, Czech, or Ukraine):
• Private apartment: €100–150/month. Medlink Students' affiliation with some European letting agencies can help you get cheaper accommodation in your chosen city,
• Bills: €40
• Food: €100 (A BIG MAC meal in McDonalds is £2)
• Clothes: you must take into account that you need at least winter and summer clothes.
• Medical insurance: FREE (with help from Medlink Students)
• Entertainment: €80
• Transport: less than €2 per taxi ride. Train journeys between cities are as cheap as 15 RON (£3), based on the average 4 hour train journey within Europe.
• Flights – can be very cheap (€35 each way booked in advance) You will be provided with timetables at the start of each year, so you know when your holidays will be. Medlink Students' affiliation with some European flight companies can help you get a cheaper flight to your chosen country, ask us about this.
Accessing money – Speak with your Medlink Advisor, but British students normally transfer money to their European account or just use their British bank cards at any ATM for free.
