* Money: How easily were you able to live on a student's budget?

(1 = not very easy/$200+ on food & personal expenses/week, 2.5 = $100/week, 5 = very easily/minimal cost)

I ended up spending less money than I was intending to, but some spent more. It really depends on you and what restaurants you choose to eat and what you choose to get at each. I shared some meals with others and that made expenses go down!

Not including program expenses, about how much money did you spend on food and other expenses each week? I spent about 150-200 or so in each country
