If you go studying you will need some kind of student funding. Money is essential for your existence whether you like it or not. Of course it is great if you have student grant or social grant so you can cover your expenses while you study, but not all have this privilege and it is not the same in every country in Europe.
When you study there are many expenses and you will have to be very economic and practical when it comes to defining monthly budget. In some countries you will also have to pay scholarship for attending a college. Also if you are going to a private university you will have to pay scholarship. This scholarships are usually quite high so not many people can afford them. Some parents save money for many years so they can pay for scholarship for their children. Sometimes it is sad because some talented people cannot go studying, because they cannot afford it.
