Australia is one of the world’s best places for international students. It is one of the most culturally diverse countries, with about one in four people born overseas. Australia has a safe, multicultural environment and an international reputation for excellence in all areas of education. We also have the world’s most rigorous consumer protection for international students.

Australians enjoy one of the highest standards of living in the world. An average international student in Australia will spend as a minimum about A$410 a week on accommodation, food, clothing, entertainment, transport and phone. The cost of living in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane also depends largely on the students’ lifestyle, choice of accommodation and social expenses.
