More than 60 per cent of students have studied abroad, according to a recent study by the University of Sydney.
But what is studying abroad and how much do you spend?
Here’s a look at the cost of a one-year study abroad and what to expect.
What’s studying abroad for?
Study overseas is an exciting and fast-growing option for international students, especially those studying in Australia.
The cost varies, depending on the location of your studies, and if you want to go overseas to work or study, you may need to pay more than $12,000 for one year.
For example, in Sydney, the cost for a one year study abroad trip is $12.80 per person, including accommodation, food, and travel.
That’s the equivalent of more than a $15,000 trip for the average Australian student.
Students who study abroad have to pay their own way, with many of them paying their own fees.
For students from the US and the UK, the standard fee is $11,500.
For students from Asia, $10,000 is the average.
For international students from China, the average is $15 for two years.
For the most expensive trip, students from India can expect to pay between $18,000 and $30,000.
A study abroad student will spend between $35,000 to $60,000 over the course of a year.
The costs are expected to decrease over time.
In some places, the costs will increase, especially if you’re studying in a foreign country with a low cost of living.
Study abroad is not a cheap option for students from other countries.
A student from Thailand who studied in Australia can expect a full-tuition, two-year course at a cost of between $8,400 and $11.6, depending upon the location.
Study Abroad, a travel agency in London, estimates a student from India would spend between £10,500 to £13,000 a year on study abroad.
A trip to Thailand would cost between £5,000 ($7,400) to £7,200 ($8,500) in a two- or three-year term.
A British student from Singapore would spend around £4,800 ($6,000) a year for a two year term.
The average cost for students studying in the US is around $15.60 a month.
For an international student from China the average cost would be $6,600 ($7
