Many are of the opinion that the cost of living in Australia is exorbitantly high. Though it is more expensive to live in Australia than New Zealand, it is indeed cheaper than United States or UK as living expenses and tuition costs are lower here.

Students studying in Australia have the option to work part time while they study. They may work up to 40 hours per fortnight, i.e. two-week period, and full-time during holidays.
