Let’s take an example of Australia’s most expensive city “Sydney”. If you are planning to come to Australia, let me tell you that Sydney is the most expensive as well as the crowded one when it comes to the population as compared to other cities. While living in Sydney or any other city of Australia, the highest portion of expenses goes towards the rent we pay for the house or room. Adding one more into this, living near the University will definitely cost you a lot more due to high demand for the students. Because of this, most of the students who wants to save some money, prefer living a bit away from their Universities to minimise their living expenses in Australia. However, students with higher study load have to stay near to their university to save time on traveling. There is a certain amount of difference in the rents near the Universities compared to the areas bit further from the city.

Looking into the table carefully, it can also be seen that the maximum percentage of the cost of living in Australia is contributed by the rent, followed by food and other expenses. Along with these expenses, you can add more according to your shopping and entertainments habits.
After giving an estimate for expenditure, let me give you some motivation by saying that if you are a student in Australia and working 20 hrs per week on a minimum legal pay rate, you will easily be able to bear your expenses on the basis of your salary but forget about paying your tuition fee from this salary as this is nearly impossible.

To put in a nutshell, it can be said that if you are planning to come to Australia as a student, it would be better to choose a University/College where you have to pay less tuition fee. You can also consider going to regional area where you will have an advantage to 5 more points for Permanent Residency (PR) application purpose. However, if you are coming here just for the studies and want to go back to your country, you can go with any city considering how much tuition fee you are able to pay for your studies.
