Comprehensive List Of Low Tuition Universities In Australia

Many will like to study in Australia but don’t have an idea how much tuition fees cost in the country. Tuition fees in Australian universities are not that affordable, but we have tried our best to bring out the very low ones for international students. If what you find here is actually above your budget, then think of studying in Countries like Turkey, Ukraine, Cyprus, Austria, Russia where tuition fees is low and affordable usually in the range of $3000 to $5000 per year. Or in tuition free countries like Germany and Norway where international students don’t pay a dime for tuition fees.

Australia, officially the Commonwealth of Australia, is a sovereign country comprising the mainland of the Australian continent, the island of Tasmania and numerous smaller islands. It is the largest country in Oceania and the world’s sixth-largest country by total area.

Before I present you with the tuition fee list, will like us to look at the possible cost of living in Australia for students.

Cost of living in Australia for students

Cost of living in Australia is a bit high compared to other countries. In a month an international student will need about $1500 per month to live comfortable in Australia. The reason is that Accommodation, whether in a share house or on-campus student lodgings, will almost always be the largest and least negotiable expense for an international student. Rent for a week takes about $140. So lets see the breakdown of living expenses on a weekly bases.

Rent                                       $140

Groceries and eating out                     $130

Power and gas                               $25

Phone and internet                             $15

Public transport                              $40

Entertainment                                $40

Total for 52 weeks:                               $20,280

So from this break down, a student needs about $20,280 in a year or $1,690 in a month for living expenses like feeding, accommodation, transportation, entertainment, buying of books etc. If this is too high for you, then consider European countries like Russia, Belarus, Turkey, Poland, etc where living cost is about $400 per month.

Now, let’s take a look at an updated list of tuition fees in Australia. Note that the values are in Australian dollars and as at the time of writing this post 1 Australian dollar equals 0.70 United States dollars.
