Managing living costs in Australia

The Australian government requires all international students to have a minimum of $18,610 for cost of living expenses each year. Whilst this is a minimum, the chances are it may cost more to live in Australia, especially if they study in a metropolitan city like Melbourne, Sydney or Brisbane.  It is a big responsibility in a young person’s life to take on the management of this amount of money and also all the other challenges of moving to another country.  That is why we created the ‘Study in Australia’ Finance Butler package to give you and your child peace of mind.  Let a Butler handle the details so your child can focus on their study.   Contact Bill Butler for details.
