Australia has one of the highest and reasonable standards of living in the world.
On average, an international student in Australia should budget for AUD$ 21,041, approximately KES 1M per year.
Included are accommodation, food, limited entertainment, public transport, and incidental costs. You could spend more or less depending on where you live and your lifestyle.
The ACE team will assist you in obtaining accommodation either on-campus, off campus accommodation and homestay.
Australia has a health cover system for International students known as Overseas Health Cover (OSHC). Every student must have this cover for the enrolment duration as it is a requirement for the Australian Student Visa application.
OSHC covers any medical or hospital care you may require while studying in Australia and contributes toward the cost of prescription medicines and ambulance services in case of an emergency. OSHC does NOT cover Dental, Optical and Physiotherapy.
The Australian Government allows international students on a valid Australian student visa to work up to 40 hours per fortnight (approx. 20 hours per week) during the semester and full time in their holidays.
Work is not guaranteed, and students who do manage to find a part-time job, find that they may be able to earn enough money to cover some to most of their living expenses only.
It is legally impossible for International students to earn enough money to cover their tuition (school) fees and living expenses while working within the stipulated working hours in Australia.
