Cost of Living
Clermont-Ferrand is one of the most affordable student cities in France, it is much cheaper than other major cities as Paris, Lyon etc..
Living expenses including rent, food, other bills, can be estimated at approximately 550- 1050€ per month depending on the student’s lifestyle and the type of accommodation rented.
During the first month you will need extra money for rent deposits, connecting electricity, gas, telephone and various other extras, especially if you are going to rent your own flat. You are strongly advised to open a bank account as soon as you arrive in France and to deposit/ wire enough money to cover all these initial expenses. You may also have books to buy (around 200 euros per year.)
