When Compared to other English speaking countries the costs of education and living in Australia are comparatively low. All tuition fees for international students who study in Australia are exempt from GST and are charged up-front, with some institutions making additional charges to cover other associated costs like sports facilities, laboratory costs, student organisation membership and library fees.

As a single student you must be able to show you have the financial capacity to cover living costs of at least $20,290 Australian dollars per year. There are additional costs for extra family members.

Therefore, using this amount as a guide, a single student living away from home will require at least $1,690 per month for accommodation, food, utilities and entertainment. NOTE: Actual costs will depend on your lifestyle choices and needs.

Statistics show that it costs 24% more to live in Sydney, 21% more to live in Melbourne, 12% more to live in Perth and 8% more to live in Brisbane.

International students will require approximately: AU$18,000 per year or AU$270 a week to cover living expenses in Adelaide. Depending on your lifestyle you may require more or less than these amounts (This is a rough guide only. Remember your living costs are separate to your tuition fees)
