I'm deciding on whether to go on an exchange programme in Sweden.
I found this website that compares cost of living, and it seems that Stuttgart is actually more expensive. Or is the website just wrong?
I will not say that the website is not good, but ya seeing London is less expensive that Sydney is a bit weird.
Germany offer a lot of cheap option. The cheapest option is Stuttgart is way cheaper that the cheapest one in Stockholm.
I see. I shall keep that in mind then, thanks 😊
Btw, how would living expenses in Sweden then compare with Norway or the Netherlands.
Very unfortunately, neither Germany or Hungary remain options for me as well, as it turns out their semester dates are incompatible with mine.
You guys have been very helpful so far, and i wish i could return the favour by contributing to the forums, but unfortunately the only country i have any real experience with is my own, and it seems not many people are interested in visiting it.
Norway is more expensive that Sweden. In fact ten percent of the Swedish work in Norway cuz they make more money...
Holland is a bit more expensive that Germany (depends where you are...Amsterdam is way more expensive that Rotterdam)...However is a very nice country, full of history, culture and people from all over the world. I am not even gonna talk about party.
I see. So my choice is between a very expensive country and two even more expensive countries. Haha.
Holland is not that expensive... Amsterdam is more that the rest of the country...but is very doable on a budget in comparaison with Scadinavia.
Hi Kevin, if you google "exchange student uppsala" you find all the information you need, incl. housing options and cost of living. Good luck
I am Dutch and I would still recommend Sweden above most of the other countries mentioned. The cost of living really isn't all that it is cracked up to be by others. In fact if you aren't a heavy drinker or smoker you should be just fine in Sweden and the standard of living in Sweden is higher than most other European countries. As for cheap flights, Ryanair, Europe's cheapest airline, flies to plenty of airports in Sweden thus connecting you in a cheap way to the rest of Europe.
Hi. Read your blog, but it was back in 2011.
Not sure if you still on it.
Need to know of best way of staying in fairly cheap places when driving around with a hire car.
