Visa Arrangements for Study

Most international students require an Australian Student Visa to study in Australia. Check below to check your own circumstance.

Living and Accommodation in AUSTRALIA

How much does it cost and how can you budget to make the most of your time studying in Australia? It depends on the city you’ve chosen to study in (Sydney or Melbourne), where you live (in the city or suburbs), the type of place you want to live in (share house, private accommodation) and your lifestyle.


As a guide, a single student living away from home will need to budget $2,500 – $4,000 each month in addition to your course fees to cover general living expenses such as accommodation, food and clothing, transport and entertainment (according to Study Australia as at May 2024).


The Study Australia site is designed to help you think about how you spend money and to give you a broad estimate of potential costs in Australia. To get a better idea of the average living costs in your chosen city of study, check out the cost of living calculator.


We have listed some categories below to help you plan ahead.

The Department of Home Affairs requires international students to demonstrate that they have access to at least A$29,710 to cover living costs in Australia during the first year – this number increases if you are bringing a partner or dependants. See the Department of Home Affairs website for more information.

Australian borders are open to international students

Although borders are open, it is always advisable to visit the Australian Government website for the latest updates, regarding international student travel. A high percentage of Australia's adult population is fully vaccinated against COVID19, making Australia one of the safest places to live and study.
• Restrictions vary across Australia and it is a good idea to check the latest information on the Government Website below and the page for international travellers.
• Before arranging travel, you should also check the Home Affairs website below for conditions of entry.
