There is no doubt that Belgium is the perfect place to enjoy a quality education and a relatively cool quality of life. What makes it even better is that Belgium offers excellent value for money, with living expenses and tuition costs comparable to other neighboring countries.
An average international student in here will spend about USD 500-800 a month on accommodation, food, clothing, entertainment, transportation and telephone costs. Books and administrative fees are relatively cheaper.
Due to the fact that many people come to this amazing country and somehow get fascinated by it, deciding to move to Belgium is not uncommon and should not be taken as craziness. For those who study there, the cost of living in Belgium would vary, as their lifestyles are distinct and their daily lives differ.
However, generally spoken, the prices can be relatively low compared to many other destinations and what’s even more important, they are declining in recent years making Belgium a perfect study abroad destination for most prospects.
About Health Insurance
All universities in Belgium have a free medical service at their medical facilities. These offer advice on emergency treatment and consultations on personal and health matters.
There is always at least one medical doctor and one nurse working during the week at the health centres of university clinics. However, international students are strongly advised to come to Belgium with a valid health insurance policy in some contexts.
International students are responsible for costs of hospitalization or for any medical service or treatment not available at university health care facilities.
When it comes to food, the prices are affordable, but only for those items that are produced in the country itself and they can be found at the local stores. Imported products are available, but they are far way expensive. The country boasts a very low price of bread.
Dining out is always attractive and students like it, as restaurant meals are not expensive for those who can afford in more developed countries. When you are in Belgium you won’t struggle to fend.
Talking about transportation! Car owners and drivers will be very satisfied with the gasoline price in Belgium. Buying a gallon of it at the price of half of dollar is more than fair. That is also the reason why the public transport in Belgium is inexpensive and you can have a monthly pass for just about USD 10.
On the other bit! Housing is probably the biggest expense in Belgium and above all those high prices utilities come. Mobile phone tariff is low and very affordable. For all the other services, such as water, electricity and the Internet access, you’ll need to separate approximately USD 50, which people from more developed countries would consider ridiculously low.
