General living expenses

Students can expect general living expenses to amount to approximately € 800 to € 1,000 per month. This amount includes accommodation (i.e. approximately € 500 per month), food, transport and personal expenses. Every EU/EEA bachelor student can get a loan to pay their tuition fees. In addition to their studies, many students work in order to pay for their monthly expenses or just to have some extra money. In certain cases, EEA/EU students that work next to their studies are entitled to further loans. More information can be found on
