Student visa living costs and evidence of funds

From 1 July 2016, the basic rate of living costs under the Migration regulations increased. Under these regulations prospective student visa applicants and their family members must have access to the following funds to meet the living costs requirements:

  • A$19,830 a year for the main student;
  • A$6,940 a year for the student's partner;
  • A$2,970 a year for child.

Students must demonstrate that the funds they are relying upon to meet the costs of studying in Australia will be genuinely available to them during their stay in Australia.

The figures above are indicative only and costs can vary significantly depending on where you live in Australia. You should be prepared in case your living costs are greater than the indicated figures.
