Budgeting and Personal Spending
The amount students spend above what they pay the college varies greatly according to the individual student and the cost of living in the host country. All necessities are covered with your program fee but students still find they want additional cash for souvenirs, eating out, and independent travel on free weekends and breaks.
Students studying in Europe will pay more for extra meals/snacks and independent travel than students studying in Ghana or Honduras. Returning students suggest that students will want about $750 to $1250 for their time away. You may be able to make it on less than these amounts if you are careful and restrict independent travel plans.
