Brisbane is one of Australia’s most affordable places to study. You’ll find that tuition fees provide students with value for money, and cost of living expenses are more affordable compared to other developed countries.
Australian Education International estimates than an international student in Australia will spend about $380 a week on accommodation, food, clothing, entertainment, transport and telephone. This figure is only an estimate though, and will change depending on your location, lifestyle and even your course.
