Dear all!
The information provided in wnso australia about studying there are quite helpful for the students who plan to study there. But when I read information about accomodation I found some information confusing. such as: if someone want to stay in hostels the cost is around:80-135 aus dollers. but its not stated there is its monthly, daily or weekly? and same thing is happens in other info like, shared and rental accomodation. so that can anyone try to make it clear? Actually I want to request to the board staffs of this site.

Hello Harry77, I'm Kriitka, I've been living in Melbourne, Australia for last 3.5 years as a international student. So, I think I can help you here. In Australia the general practise is to charge the rent weekly. That means, if someone says the rent is $110, it means it's per week. When you move in to a place, you have to pay one month bond (generally). This bond is not given to the landlord or the person who collects rent but to RTBA, they are the governmental body in Australia who regulates residential bonds. This bond money is taken as a guarantee that you will rent the property as per agreed by you and the landlord. It is given back to you when your contract is finished and you move out.
I might also add that when we say one month rent in Australia, it's a calender month. So, it is a week's rent multiplied by 52 (there are 52 weeks in a year) divided by 12 (months in a year). So, if your rent is $110 per week, you will pay 110 x 52 / 12 that is $476.66 every month to the landlord.
Hope this helps you and won't confuse you more. Feel free to ask me more.
Cheers!

Hello Hari,
I am sorry it has been so long, but I have been busy lately.
Well, what can I say, every foriegn land is different and difficult to adapt. So, instead of getting worried about something that is already there, we should try to adapt in the new environment. That is the best you can do.

All the nepalese students who come here finds it harder to find a job at first. But it is not impossible. It took me a while but once I got in I have never looked back. So, yes it is hard, there are risks but there are risk everywhere even where we grew up, Nepal.

When I first came to Melbourne, I would have really appreciated any help I could get and at times I think, I learned the hard way. That is why today I have started a business in Melbourne called Student Assist.
We help Nepalese student familiarize them to this new environment as soon as possible. So that they would have more time to do things that they come here to do, Study, earn lots of money and achieve their things.

I think simple things like showing the new students how the public transport system works in Melbourne, or finding them a place to live or even giving them all the information we can to help them find a job etc will save them a lot of time. And hopefully they will experience better Melbourne that is here for them to explore.

So all the best wishes for you Hari in whatever you are planning.
Keep me posted

Hello there,
Thanks for the thumbs up. Hey do you know how to delete a post. Today I posted 2 replies and realise that the discussions were almost 2 years old. I feel so stupid and I would be so embarrased if the people who started the discussion would end up seeing them!
Please help
Thanks
Kritika
