Student Visa
Living in Australia:

If you're coming from Europe or the USA, Australia is going to look pretty cheap. Food, in particular, is great value. Accommodation is also reasonably priced, and if you're staying in hostels or on-site caravans or camping, and mostly making your own meals you could conceivably get by on about US$20 to US$25 a day. Travel will be your biggest expense - distances are long - so if you're moving around a bit, eating out once or twice a day and staying in budget hotels, plan for around US$50 a day.

Students from all over the world come to Australia to take advantage of our top-notch education and enjoy our friendly hospitality and cultural diversity.

Australia has a very good health care system. All Australians pay a Medicare levy (additional tax) to fund the public health system and ensure everyone gets access to public system doctors, hospitals and other health care services.

Australia has a fantastic variety of food. Our top quality meat, fish, fruits and vegetables are exported globally. There is a large range of fruit and vegetables available at Australian produce markets

Costs & Expenses:

Australia offers excellent value for money, with living expenses and tuition costs in Australia considerably less expensive than the United Kingdom (UK) and the United States of America (USA).
Tuition fees vary according to the institution and course selected but this website provides a guide to the average costs. Scholarships are available for international students but the competition is intense and most of the international students in Australia are full-fee paying students.
  • Tuition Fees
    International students are charged up-front tuition fees. Institutions sometimes make an additional charge to cover other costs associated with being a student: student organisation membership, library and laboratory costs and sports facility costs. Some courses make specific charges for excursions, books, stationery and other essential material. These costs will vary depending on the course or institution therefore average costs are provided below and should only be used as a guide. All school tuition fees are exempt from Australia's Goods and Services Tax (GST).

    Institutions will advise when to pay your tuition fees and acceptable methods of payment.

About Australia:

European exploration of Australia began in 1606 when a Spanish navigator sailed through the Torres Strait, which separates Australia from Papua New Guinea. He was soon followed by Dutch, French and English explorers who began to chart the continent.

The Commonwealth of Australia consists of Tasmania and six states:
New South Wales, Queensland and, Western Australia, Two territories, South Australia , Australian Capital Territory , Victoria , Northern Territory.

Australia is a land of the unexpected. Of vast size, amazing natural wealth, awesome scenery and exotic plant and animal life.

There is an enormous variety of Aboriginal art. From traditional paintings, modern screen prints, jewellery and carvings, to boomerangs, didgeridoos, weapons, ceramics, and recordings of traditional music.

  • The income you get from working in Australia should only supplement your income and not be used as your only source of income. Before you come to Australia, you must show that you have enough money to pay for living expenses, education costs and travel for the duration of your study.
  • Some institutions offer a job placement service. If work is available you will need to obtain a tax file number from the Australian Tax Office. You will need to contact them about their requirements and processes.
  • Most students take part-time or casual jobs at some time during their studies. Some jobs are closely tied to courses of study (such as part-time work by law students in solicitors' offices). Some students teach school children or get jobs on campus in the canteen, the bookshop, in the institution's offices and as lab assistants. Some jobs are entirely outside the education community such as bartending, babysitting, gardening, hospitality, sales, computers, restaurants, or fruit picking
