Study Abroad Expenses

Costs

Just as the types of ESL schools in different countries vary, so do the costs of education. Cost may be a major factor in deciding which school to attend. The most expensive fees incurred when studying abroad are airfare, tuition, housing fees, and food expenses. Once classes have actually begun, you will find that commuting fees, school supplies, and medical insurance can also be expensive. The amount of money you will need to study abroad will depend on various factors such as the country you choose, the type of program, and the length of time that you spend studying abroad.

Example of Study Abroad Expenses
In the United States, ESL tuition can cost anywhere from $150 - $700 per week. Housing fees can differ greatly depending on the area surrounding the school. The cost of meals may be included in the cost of housing, but in any case, students can expect to pay about $100 - $200 dollars per week for this. Also, money will be required to pay for telephone bills, clothes, fun with friends, and other living expenses. Depending on the person as well as the country where you will be studying, there will be students who spend close to $10,000 and others who might spend up to $30,000 in a single year studying abroad.
