Many students choose to study in Australia because of its quality education, friendly people, stunning scenery, high standard of living and its affordability. For about the same price as the cheapest London Underground train ticket, you can buy lunch in cosmopolitan central Sydney or catch a ferry to glorious Manly Beach. You can also relax over a cool drink looking at the sails of the Sydney Opera House, or go to the World Heritage Blue Mountains. Sydney can cater to every budget. The average international student in Australia spends $350 to $500 per week on:
accommodation, food, clothing, entertainment, transport, telephone and incidental costs.
