  1. I'm considering studying in Perth for a year, and I'm trying to get an idea of what my living expenses would be. Can anyone give me an idea of how much I'd be paying to rent a room within commuting distance of Northbridge?Thanks.

    Cost of living

    I'm considering studying in Perth for a year but some people say that it's really expensive to live there. In particular, one person I'd spoken to said that food was really expensive. As someone on a student budget, I wondered whether I'd be able to survive for the two semesters needed to complete the course. I know that there's no such thing as a 'typical' grocery shop, but could someone give me a ball-park figure (AUD) for a week's grocery shopping for one? Thanks.
  3. I'm considering studying in Perth for a year, but have concerns about the cost of living there. Does anyone know if I'd be able to do a few hours work a week on a student visa? Thanks.
  4. Hi folks! Myself, my girlfriend and our two children intend to ditch the doom and gloom of the UK in favour of a new life in Australia ASAP but could really do with some help and guidance in regards to how much money would be required before we're able to set a realistic date for our arrival. Okay, so I've done some research of my own and here's what I've come up with: $4,500 to pay for our flights $2,000 to secure a rental property $6,000 to cover our first three months rent $2,500 to allow for three months worth of food TOTAL: $15,000 (just over £8,000 - feel free to correct me if this is wrong) Please bare in mind that I have very little knowledge in regards to day-to-day living costs in Perth and therefore I've had to guesstimate most of those sums. Anyway, I would now like to find out a little more about other expenses, such as utility bills, mobile phones and anything else we may need to budget for in order to ensure that our move goes through without too many hiccups. Any advice/suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Cheers, Gary.
