Cost of living

The amount of money you will need each month largely depends on the lifestyle you are used to at home. Either way, you will need at least €1100 to €1500 per month to cover your normal expenses. Below are some sample figures for a PhD fellow.

  • rent of a furnished room: approx. €550 to €900 per month
  • food: approx. €250 per month
  • public transport, bicycle: about €50 per month
  • insurances: €100 to €150 per month
  • entertainment and leisure: €150 to €200 per month
