AUSTRALIA LIFESTYLE

Imagine studying English, learning about different cultures through your new international friends, and connecting with locals while you work in a local pub or coffee shop. In your free-time, relax on the beach or at a cool laneway café or pub; dance at a local festival; or discover Australian animals and nature through fun and exciting activities. Get ready to experience all this and more!

FOOD

Australian food combines local favourites with international flavours, so get ready to tempt your taste buds! If you want to try something uniquely Australian, order some avocado toast with your flat white (similar to a latte), acquire a taste for vegemite, grab a Tim Tam, or try a kangaroo burger. You can also explore Australian “Bush Tucker” which is food that was traditionally harvested and eaten by the indigenous population.

ARTS AND CULTURE

Australian arts and culture combines indigenous and British history influences with the cultural richness shared by more recent global immigrants. Add to that, a healthy dose of modern, youthful creativity. Discover Australian and global creative talent and get inspired through amazing street art, festivals, museums, galleries, theatres, concerts, and more.

TYPICAL LIVING COSTS

Plan your budget before you come to Australia and make sure you can cover your living expenses. Besides tuition fees, airlines tickets, visa fees, and insurance, you’ll want to think about daily living expenses like transportation, rent, internet, groceries, food, entertainment, clothing and more. Most students can expect to spend between AUD $550 – $1,000 per month on expenses on top of accommodation costs. How much you spend is up to you. You could save money by choosing a homestay with a meal-plan, or take advantage of free events and activities in the city where you live. Or you may want to spend more on things you enjoy.

Visit the Study in Australia government website to see typical living costs in Australia.

HEALTH AND SAFETY

Australia is a very safe country to visit, but you should always remain aware of your belongings and your surroundings and make smart and safe choices. Getting out in Australia’s natural environment, and enjoying local beaches may require extra preparation or care – always ask a local how to enjoy outdoor adventures safely, or join a group activity where these details are taken care of for you.

HEALTH COVERAGE (OSHC)

All students must show proof of Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) to apply for their student visa. ILSC can arrange the purchase of your OSHC through Bupa. Visit oshc.bupa.com.au for more information.
