The costs of studying overseas vary greatly depending on your lifestyle and where you go. Major costs are your return airfare, accommodation and living expenses, which vary from country to country. Living and travel costs range from as little as $2000 in total for short-term international study programs, up to $2000 per month (more in some high-cost countries) for full semester or year programs. Some partner universities also require you to pay for health insurance, orientation or extra-curricular activities, so be aware that extra costs like these might pop up.
Indicative travel and living costs can be found on websites such as:
For all ANU endorsed programs you continue to pay your fees to ANU, but you are exempt from paying tuition fees to the institution overseas. Often long-term overseas study will not cost much more than studying in Australia and it will give you an experience of a lifetime.
It's possible to hold more than one scholarship, bursary or grant at a time, so checking out all of the funding opportunities available to you is a good idea.
You may also be able to source some funding through our partner universities - they provide scholarships and grants to encourage you to choose them as your destination.
OS-HELP is a Government loan scheme to assist eligible Australian students enrolled in a Commonwealth supported place, who wish to undertake an overseas experience as part of their degree.
