Wondering how much does it cost to study in Australia? Let’s have a look:


Cost of studying in Australia can be divided in to:

  • Tuition Fees (course fees)

  • Living Expenses

  • Insurance, travel and other costs

Postgraduate – Masters Degree – A$20,000 to A$38,000* per year

Doctoral – PhD Degree – AUD $14,000 to $38,000* per year

*These are approximate figures and do not include veterinary and medicine courses.


Living Expenses while Studying in Australia

We believe that the living cost in Australia is about A$12,000 – A$21,000 per year including your accommodation, food, travel, books etc. depending on the city you will be living in (Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Adelaide, Canberra, other), your type of accommodation and of course your life style.

In the above, your accommodation cost is the highest amongst all your expenses and the cost depends on the TYPE of accommodation you choose to live in:

  • Hostels and Guesthouses– $80 to $135 per week
  • Shared Rental– $70 to $250 per week (least expensive option)

Here are your other expenses in Australia:

  • Public transport– $10 to $50 per week
  • Car (after purchase)– $150 to $250 per week
  • Entertainment– $50 to $100 per week

Note: The Department of Immigration and Border Protection has financial requirements towards your living cost that you must meet in order to receive a student visa. Below is a guide on the requirements you must meet to study in Australia:

  • Cost of Living of the Main Applicant (Student)– $18,610

Insurance and Other Costs

Insurance and Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC)

All overseas students need to take the OSHC. You need to maintain OSHC while your student visa is valid. You will also be responsible for your own accident and property insurance. We also advise students to purchase a separate travel insurance before leaving Indian to cover lost baggage, cancellation of plane tickets and repatriation.

OSHC has to be maintained for all the dependents too (spouse and children).
