    Default Which University?

    Hi pals, I'm from Singapore... I know this topic might be off track, but hope to get good advice from pals down under...
    Looking forward to a education in australia, interested in Accounting or Electronics Engineering... I'm an average grade student...
    Any recommendation on which university?

    Accounting at Adelaide University and Electronics Engineering at Flinders University, that's if you are planning to live in Adelaide. Adelaide has a cheaper cost of living and a quieter lifestyle.

    **** WARNING *****

    Australian University are becoming very expensive for full-fee paying students so you will need to pay up front which will cost you more than $20,000 per year.

    I have been through university and the debt at the end may not be worth it.

    Ouch!!! the real cost of being a student!

    The cost of living in one of the smaller cities is much cheaper than elsewhere in Australia, I guess a lot depends on how close to the campus you want to live, if you are going to get a car etc

    I thought this site may be of use

    I work at one of the campuses (but not for the University) in Canberra which I think covers both your choices so feel free to ask any questions you may have

    Thanx alot bvb, your site is of great help.
    By the way, KrisBarry, I thought you are an Australian? So you won't need to pay as much as an International student right?
    I read somewhere, which says Brisbane has a slightly lower cost of living in Adelaide. May I right?

    Yes I am Australian, so I was able to use the HECS system. But it toook me 10 years to pay of this debt so lots of interest was charged. (CPI) X 10 Years. I think in one of those years CPI was running at 6%.

    Yes Brisbane has a few cheaper items... they have a much larger tourism industry and therefore less taxes.

    Petrol, Beer, Cigarettes are certainly cheaper, but I would say that rental and housing cost would be higher.
