Student life & Living costs

Living costs in Cyprus are very affordable in comparison to countries in Western or Central Europe. Of course, your expenses depend on many factors, such as your lifestyle (e.g. how often you go out, where you live, what type of food you buy and where, etc.). Make sure to check the following website to see how much you are likely to spend daily for various things such as meals at a restaurant, a water bottle, eggs, etc.

Casa College offers a scholarship to students. Each application is reviewed carefully and of course, the academic performance and out-of-class activities are taken into consideration.

Of course, if you live on student budget, there are several tips to make sure you reduce your expenses:

  1. Plan your weekly meals and cook more. Once you move to Cyprus and find permanent accommodation, you can go grocery shopping once or twice a week – this way you can prepare your weekly menu at home, instead of eating out which will, of course, cost more.
  2. Consider sharing an apartment with other students. In case you live on your own, rent and bills will be higher. This is why most students prefer to look for roommates.
  3. Is it essential? Every time you buy something, try to think about it carefully – do you really need the item / the snack that much? Maybe wait for an hour or a day and see if you still want it.
  4. Keep a diary of your expenses. There are many mobile applications to help you keep track of your expenses. This way, at the end of the month you can see where most of your savings go and think about what you can do better in the future to take control of your finances.
  5. Find a part-time job. You can look for job opportunities in Cyprus! Many international companies look for foreigners who possess language skills, so you might be able to find a suitable work position. Once you start earning money, you will definitely think twice before buying stuff!

Student accommodation

Casa College is located in the city centre of Nicosia, the capital city of Cyprus. This means that students have many options for student accommodation! The price depends on many factors such as the location of the property, how many people live in it, how modern the building is, etc. In general, students can choose between a private apartment (meaning you have a bedroom, a bathroom and kitchen for you only) as well as a shared apartment (meaning you have a private bedroom but other rooms are usually shared with roommates). You can share an apartment with one, two or even more people – in this case, you can expect to pay rent of about 100 to 200 EUR per month. In comparison, a private apartment in the city centre is usually around 450 EUR per month. The team of Inter HECS and Casa College are happy to help students find accommodation, so don’t worry – you will never be left alone in the city and you can easily find other students to share accommodation with!
