Could anyone tell me how the cost of living is in Santa Cruz in Tenerife? How much would an apartment cost there and how does the cost of living compare to other areas of Spain?

The cost of living in Santa Cruz is cheaper than the Iberian peninsular, the VAT is only 5%. However La Laguna not far from Santa Cruz, a tram ride, is cheaper still. Depending where and on what you require apartments can start from €350 monthly.

Thanks. I am considering studying at a laguna university for 10 months. how much do you think I would need to get by for that amount of time and live a reasonable lifestyle (own flat, no car, no family to support)?

That is difficult for me to answer, living on the island of El Hierro and not having had to study for more years than I can remember. However I will say that it is far cheaper than England and probably the same applies to Ireland.

We live here for about 800 a month, two of us, that is running a car and the expenses of two properties.

I think you should pose this question elsewhere, perhaps on the La Laguna page of Facebook.

One other thing if you do go take some warm clothes, La Laguna can get a bit chilly on Winter nights
