Personal Expenses

This section is to help you budget your general expenses while you’re living at your foreign location, from shopping to going out at night. All of these items are PER WEEK expenses.


Consider what kind of money you will need for shopping, souvenirs, museum tickets, shows and nights out on the town.

Public Transportation

Consider additional money you will need to spend outside of your normal commuting funds for entertainment transportation.

Food and Drink

When you’re out around town you will likely spend more money on food and drinks than you do on campus or at work. 

Activities and Events

While you are in your host country, your school or place of employment may offer activities or events for you which
may cost money, it is important to think about this and budget money for yourself so you can participate. 

Gifts and Souvenirs

Don’t forget to budget money for gifts and souvenirs. Remember you will have to get them home too.


You can input any other expenses you plan on per week here.
