Students relocating to Sydney should consider evening transportation when choosing accommodation. Students working on productions are often required to stay as late as 11pm or 12am and need to consider safe ways to get home in the evenings. For this reason, many students choose accommodation options close to NIDA.
Consider that the costs of living in Sydney may be different to your home location.
We estimate that you need approximately AUD26,000 to cover living expenses in Sydney for each year of study. In addition, we recommend that you have at least AUD10,000 when you arrive to cover the initial costs of books, course equipment, rental bond and furniture.
These figures do not include the purchase of large household items (such as a refrigerator) or a car. We recommend that you use public transport, as owning a car can be expensive and there is very limited parking near NIDA.
