Studying abroad provides you with valuable insight into the world. It not only enhances your survival skills, but also gives you the opportunity to experience a new culture. While an overseas education does not have to cost you a fortune, there are things you can do during your time overseas that will make your study abroad experience both affordable and worthwhile.
Mentioned below are several ways you can save money while Studying Abroad.
Avoid Frequent ATM Withdrawals
ATM withdrawals come with a transaction fee, and a great way of saving money is to look for a bank that doesn’t charge you an ATM fee every time you make a withdrawal.
Make Use of Public Transportation
One way of saving money while Studying Abroad is by making use of the public transportation facilities that are available to you. Public transportation is a much more feasible option when studying abroad, avoid using taxis and opt for using the subway or the bus instead. Cycling is another fun way of traveling around; it gives you the chance to explore the city.
Cut Down On Your Calling Expenses
Using prepaid calling cards to get in touch with your family and friends back home can be expensive, especially when you are trying to cut down on expenses. There are several video and internet calling services that you can use that are not just cheaper, but also cost efficient.
Avoid Eating Out All The Time
Avoid eating at restaurants all the time; this will surely burn a hole into your pocket sooner than expected. Home cooked meals are nutritious and healthy, and will help you save money during your time abroad. Buying your groceries in bulk will keep you from making multiple trips to the grocery store and will also save on travel costs.
Don’t Buy Things On Impulse
You may find yourself buying things you don’t need. Avoid doing this, and only buy items that are an absolute requirement. Buying things on an impulse will leave you with a long bill by the end of the month.
Make Use Of Student Discounts
Your student ID comes with its share of benefits. There are certain privileges that you can enjoy by just being a student in a foreign country. Student IDs can earn you a discount while visiting certain tourist attractions, and can also gain you free access to museums. There are also discounts you can avail at libraries, restaurants and movie theatres.
Maintain A Budget And Stick To It
When studying abroad, ensure that you maintain a budget and keep to it, noting down your expenses for the entire month will help you keep track of your spending. Make budget cuts where you can and ensure that you keep aside some extra money incase of emergencies.
