Living expenses

Brisbane is the Capital city of Queensland and is ranked in the world's top 30 cities for quality of life and living conditions. The cost for accommodation, transport, food and entertainment is average for Australia but a lot cheaper than Sydney.

The average student will require approximately AU$12,000 - $15,000 per year to cover living costs other than those expenses incurred for schooling.

Students must consider the costs for accommodation, telephone, electricity, food, clothing, travel, excursions, shopping and all personal items when staying abroad.
