CISaustralia can provide budgets to help you consider the full range of costs. Use them as a rule of thumb to broadly plan for ‘additional expenses’ – what you might spend and how much you will need to budget for. These budget sheets are provided as an estimate only and will vary from student to student, depending on variables such as internal personal travel and excursions, entertainment, private or off-campus accommodations, mobile phone, internet charges, etc.
