Your personal costs of living OUTSIDE of the DAI-weeks:
While during all DAI-weeks lodging and 3 meals per day will be taken care of by the DAI, it goes without words that you will have to look after yourself during the weeks OUTSIDE of our monthly gatherings.
PLEASE TAKE THESE MONTHLY COSTS IN ACCOUNT:
Insurances ( appr. 50 euro)
Obligatory: DAI students must all have a health-as well as a liability insurance. WE CANNOT STRESS ENOUGH HOW IMPORTANT THIS IS. Please consult this page.
Food, drink ( appr. 180 euro)
Wherever you are based, sharing a kitchen where you can prepare communal meals can make a lot of difference !
Clothing etc ( appr. 80 euro)
Being part of DAI Roaming Academy means that you will have to deal with a variety of weatherconditions: from rainy and cold to warm and sunny. You should be prepared for both. If, in between DAI Weeks you are going to be based in the Netherlands, you should count on lots of rain...
Telephone and internet ( appr. 50 euro)
Production costs art & research ( appr. 30 euro)
Books, materials, according to your needs and possibilities.
Travel costs ( appr. 70 euro)
Rent, electricity, gas and water ( appr. 600 euro)
The amount will largely depend on where you are based. It is likely that you will pay less for a room in Arnhem, Rotterdam, Berlin, Brussels or Zagreb (all mentioned as examples) than for a room in expensive Amsterdam or crazy expensive London.
Wrapping up: students based in the Netherlands should count on spending in total between € 800 and € 1100 per month, depending on their location and on their personal economy.
