About Australia


Australia is a land of contrasts: sweeping golden beaches, coral reefs rich with marine life, tropical rainforests, mountain ranges, vast grazing lands and sparse deserts. Surrounded by the Indian and Pacific Oceans, Australia has many animals and plants which are unique to the planet. The surface geology is typically old and flat with a major mountain range stretching down the eastern coast and another mountain range in the north west of the continent. Australia is home to approximately 22 million people with diverse multicultural backgrounds.

Cost of living

In addition to paying the full cost of their courses, students must meet all their own travel and living expenses. A single person studying in Australia will need a minimum of AU$18,000 each year in addition to the tuition fees to cover their living and other expenses. This amount also depends on the kind of accommodation a student chooses. For a married person with a dependent spouse, he/she will need another AU$6,300 each year. If there are children, the living expenses needed will be approximately AU$3,600 for each child.
