Living & Studying in Sydney

Australia is made up of eight states and territories. People from all parts of the world travel to live in or visit Australia. The country is surrounded by water offering beautiful beaches and amazing natural attractions like the Great Barrier Reef, many National Parks, deserts, tropical forests, canyons, mountain, and more. Some of Australia’s most popular recreational activities are surfing and skiing.

Sydney was one of the first cities established in Australia. It’s also the largest and most popular. This cosmopolitan city boasts the famous Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge. There are also numerous world-class restaurants and shopping areas. Students joining us will always have something to do whilst in Sydney.

Living expenses can include accommodation, transportation, food, clothes, books and entertainment. You will need approximately AUD $20,000 to cover the whole year of study in Sydney (excluding tuition fees).

Rents are fairly high in Sydney but this depends on whether you choose to share with friends and which suburb you choose to live in. Transport is easy to access as all trains, buses, ferry and light rails lead to the CBD.

Students should have at least AUD $2,000 when you first arrive to cover your initial expenses. Please note these figures do not include large household items such as a refrigerator or a car. For more information, visit:
