As our new students find out each September, Prague really is a beautiful place to study, with a lively student population, fantastic entertainment and great opportunities for meeting new people. It's also one of the safest cities in which to live, with an unrivalled public transport network.
Well now, there's another reason to pick Prague: according to Nestpick, an aggregator website for furnished apartments, first semester living costs in Prague are among the lowest of all the major destinations in Europe. In fact the city comes in at number 5 out of 50 in the latest student cost of living index.
The calculation is based on the average living costs for six months. According to the study, these are
- average monthly rent in Euros: €158.46
- average monthly internet cost: €15.43
- average monthly phone bill: €24.00
- average monthly food bill: €296.29
- average transport costs: €20.36
You can see the raw data for relocation costs (minus student fees), where Prague comes 8th out of 80 cities, here:
According to Ömer Kücükdere, the managing director of Nestpick, 'Relocating means not only experiencing a new city and culture, but also the chance to gain independence, connect with other international students and in many cases, even learn a new language... Studying abroad is an amazing opportunity for prospective students, and something that is increasingly considered an integral part of education.'
'We hope that this data will not only help prospective students to budget and plan for their semester abroad, but also encourage and inspire them to consider new and exciting locations.'
