Cost of living in Germany

The cost of living in Germany is relatively high. However, there are many ways for students to reduce their costs: student dormitories and shared flats offer affordable housing, cheap super markets and pubs catering to students are also helpful. Cultural events, sports centres as well as public transport even certain shops offer student discounts.

Many language schools, too, have special deals with local enterprises - it is always worth asking!

All in all for (accommodation, food, leisure, etc.) EUR 1.000 per month is a realistic amount, depending on where and how you choose to live. As a rule, living in the eastern part of German y can be a little cheaper.
