A lot depends on the chosen destination and the way of living, eating, spending free time, etc. Experience shows that a large part of the costs will usually be covered by the allocated funds (however, you should count on one of your pocket money)..

You will gain experience in life that no one will ever take from you. You will improve your language, get to know new places, people, and culture, learn to make decisions, act on your own in a foreign environment, and make new friends and contacts. The foreign experience will also tell your future employer that you are a person who is not afraid to try new things and can deal with a difficult situation on your own.
Can I take a boyfriend / girlfriend with me?
It is up to you. And literally, in everything 😊
Will I understand?
Check the language level requirements at the selected university. In most cases, they are not larger than B2, sometimes even B1. Some universities require a certificate but don't worry; if you have completed the AEL6 course, it is enough to confirm level B2. If you still have doubts, come, and we will advise you.
