That depends on which city you're going to stay in. The costs of renting a room in a student's flat range from 300pln to 1,000pln or even more if you want to live alone. As for the costs of living, it is hard to say not knowing what "moderate" means for you :) However, I suppose 150 pln ($50)a week would do. To my knowledge, most of Polish students get about 700pln - 1,000pln a month to cover they expenses, so I'd say $300/400 per month would be enough.

Does it mean every student in Poland gets money from the goverment as long as she/he is a student?

Nope, it means that they either get their money from their parents or get themselves a part-time job

Hey, you Matthew-searcher!

Your case is rather hopeless, there are thousands of Matthews all over the place, it's like looking for a Matthew in London or Glasgow. As long as you have no more details, give yourself a break...

rich to average.

Now this is scary. But fair. I did not know that they got rankings like this! Yep, that`s how it goes. From lower to higher. And this is on student`s budget. I can fill some spots.

Nice "TWOC"-ing Giles (TWOC means taking without the owners consent)

But sums it up nicely :)

[Moved from]: Student monthly expenditure

Hey,
I am going to join a university in Poland for the second semester. The thing is I dont have a clue about a student'S spendings. It would be appreciated if you could inform me about how much would i need for a month considering staying in the dorms, and having some fun(not very much). It would be great if you could give me an average interval

Thanks!!!

well, the monthly cost of living in poland depends on the city in poland and the type of life style u keep. i am a student in wroclaw and it is pretty expensive here.

your accomodation and food would take 300 euro/month at least and you would have to be spending it wisly. Nevertheless it'd be enough for decent food and fair, shared accomodation.

cheers
