Australia cost of living

The cost of living in Australia is significantly lower than the US and the UK. The living cost per year in Australia is $9,306 and this compares favourably for the international student. The average weekly cost of living is $174 and again this compares favourably for the international student in terms of affordability.

For instance, a dozen eggs sell for A$2.20 while BBQ chicken sells for $6.00-$9.00. In the services sector, haircuts for males cost anywhere from $16.00-$40.00 while those for females cost around $20.00-$100.00.

The Department of Immigration and Multicultural Affairs advises international students to make provisions for at least A$12,000. This figure is approximate and does not take into account your lifestyle and particular location of study.
