Cost of study and living cost in Australia


Cost of study and living

As it is a very popular study destination, applying for scholarships in Australia is highly competitive. If you are planning to finance your studies yourself, you should be aware of the costs associated with studying and living in this destination.

As with most other countries, the cost of education in Australia is dependent on the type and duration of your studies.

For example, English Language Courses are available at approximately $300/week. Vocational training or education on the other hand will cost you around $4,000 to $22,000. The significant difference in the range of cost is because vocational training or education usually awards Certificate Levels (from I to IV), Diplomas and Advanced Diplomas, with the cost getting higher for the latter.

Undergraduate Bachelor Degrees will have you spending $10,000 to $33,000 a year. The higher cost is associated with pursuing your degree in a private university. Studies taken in a public institution will generally cost less.

A Postgraduate Master’s Degree has an approximate cost of $20,000 to $37,000 per year, while cost for Doctoral Degrees on average range from $14,000 to $37,000. As with an undergraduate degree, private education may be a reason for higher costs.

The average cost of university fees and living costs totalling more than $38,000 per year. That’s made up of $25,375 in university fees and $13,140 for cost of living
