The average living expenses per month for a foreign student living and studying in Venlo are between €700 - €900 per month and for Plymouth between £ 900 - £ 1.100 per month. These living expenses cover rent, insurance, food, public transportation, books, clothing and other general costs. 

Costs within the first months upon arrival will be higher than all other months due to a housing deposit, intro week and books. Study books are usually bought at the start of the semester and therefore it is wise to reserve and have direct access to an amount at the start of the semester which can cover the price of all study books and the living expenses for the first two months.
