• Application fee
• Cost of visa
• General living expenses

programmes of your choice, you agree to commit yourself to institutions rules and regulations, and although far from being stringent, they will require from you a set of criteria for you to abide by.

Some universities will insist on you attending a minimum of 80% of your course, as specified by the Ministry of Education. If you decide against these rules, you might find that your student visa gets cancelled.
