Calculating Your Living Costs in Australia

Ever felt the pinch of financial stresses? Monetary issues are one of the biggest stresses that can impact any student, but especially international students. In Victoria, international students may encounter costs including course payments or expenses, accommodation, transport, groceries and other day-to-day living costs.
However, there are a few extra costs you may have while living in Australia. These might include a variety of things such as gym memberships, subscriptions to magazines and newspapers, dining out or vehicle costs that may cause the actual cost of living to increase significantly.
These extra costs can drastically impact the way you live during your time here in Australia, so it’s important to be aware of them. So, in order to get the best idea of how much it will cost to live in Australia why not check out the cost of living calculator?
This cost of living calculator makes it easier for students to get a better understanding of the realistic cost of living in different cities in Australia, and allows students on a budget to predict how much it will cost to live and study in Australia. It’s a great tool, allowing you to cater your lifestyle to your budget.
This personalised service enables students to make informed decisions about lifestyle choices and living expenses Australia. Allowing international students to determine prior - to making any commitment to travel or courses - if moving here is financially possible.
The calculator only estimates the major costs of living, so you will still need to consider additional costs such as vehicle expenses or subscriptions, as this will vary greatly from person to person. Always make sure you over-budget so you don’t find yourself stuck when you arrive in Australia. It’s also important to consider how you will live for the first few weeks before you find a job.
