Living costs

We anticipate that an international student will require approximately A$18,610 to A$21,000 (A$350 to A$400 each week) for living expenses each year (not including tuition fees).

This will normally cover:

  • Accommodation
  • Transport
  • Entertainment
  • Food
  • Clothing
  • Text books

Remember that your cost of living in Sydney will vary according to your lifestyle. For example, eating out at restaurants all the time will increase your living costs a lot, as will driving a car (you will have to pay for petrol, registration, maintenance and insurance, as well as the car itself). However, there are many ways to save money in Sydney, and still be able to make the most of your time living there.

You have a number of options when it comes to paying your SIBT tuition fees.

Please ensure that all fees are paid in Australian dollars and that you include your student ID as a reference on all payments.
