Cost of Living

Australia ranks amongst the top 10 in the Human Development Index as well as the Quality of Life Index. In simple words, a developed nation, Australia is amongst the top countries of the world in terms of its education system, the GDP and purchasing power parity indexes. With a high level of incomes, it also enjoys a high level of health awareness, an excellent medical system as well as a politically stable economy.

But as a student, these are hardly the indices you would wish to worry about. What matters is how much it would cost to stay in Australia. So, here’s the above jargon simplified to numbers per month


Type of Boarding Cost of Boarding
Hostels and Guesthouses AUD 90 – 150 per week
Shared Rental AUD 95 – 215 per week
On-campus AUD 110 – 280 per week

Other living costs

While accommodations costs form the large share of expenditures under living expenses, other costs under the cost of living in Australia include:

Components Costs
Groceries and eating out AUD 140 – 280 per week
Gas, electricity AUD 10 – 20 per week
Phone and Internet AUD 15 – 30 per week
Public transport AUD 30 – 60 per week

Working while studying

Australian Immigration Laws are comparatively easy when it comes to working while studying. Though the rules might vary, generally students are allowed to work for up to 40 weeks in a year.

Companies, local businesses, and retail shops often hire students (both domestic and international). As an international student, you are protected by the same labour laws as the domestic student populace which also means the minimum wages. As a student, you can expect around $17 per hour (rough estimates).

The kinds of jobs are also varied. There are both on-campus jobs as well as local jobs available and often universities have an office which would help you find the right one for you.

Once you graduate, you stay in Australia for 18 months to four years, depending on your qualification. In order to stay, you will need a Graduate Temporary Skilled Visa (subclass 485).
