Planning to Study in Australia? Here’s How you can manage your Study Costs

Study in Australia

A few years back, HSBC came out with a survey which pointed towards Australia being one of the most expensive countries to study overseas. And though the exact numbers must have changed through the years, yet Australia holds the position amongst the most costly study destinations even today. But still this country also remains with one of the highest concentrations of International students in the world!

But as we said, Study and Living Costs are really high here. So, let’s dig a little deeper into that. Australian universities have a unique way of calculating their tuition fee. Instead of going the usual way, that is calculating it per year, they have it done per unit. And every unit is a part of a fee band. Because most students study a combination of units from different bands, the fee happens to be different for everyone. The average tuition fee for Bachelor’s degree, this way, comes to range between 15,000 and 33,000 AUD/year, and that of Master’s and PhD degree, between 14,000 – 37,000 AUD per year. This makes the average tuition fee in an Australian University, as 33,400 AUD. But you will still have some of the top universities regulating and publishing their fee estimates on a regular basis, for every program.

Then you have the Student Services and Amenities fee which is charged by not all, but most universities. This is a cost that covers the amenities and services which are of a non-academic nature. When it comes to living there, Sydney comes as the most expensive city where costs can go as up as 2500 AUD/month. The average cost of living in the country then ranges between 1800 and 2500 AUD a month. Then there are food and transportation costs to consider too, in addition to books and other reading supplies that you’d have to spend on.

The costs are a bit high; but finding a way to manage these costs is important. There are a lot of scholarships that you will come across that can help you do just that. There are Endeavour Postgraduate Awards, Australia Awards, APEC Women in Research Fellowship Program, amongst many which offer financial aid to International students in Australia.

Also, Australian Student Visas allow International students to work up to 40 hours per fortnight, per semester, and unrestricted hours during semester breaks. There are many industries in Australia looking for part-time workers including retail, hospitality, tourism, agriculture, finance, manufacturing, etc.
